The Story

Château Batailley, Grand Cru Classé 1855, is Borie-Manoux's and the Castéja-family's flagship. The name comes from the battle ("bataille") that took place there during the 100-years war in 1453. During this battle, the French re-conquered the neighbouring Chateau Latour from the English troops, a crucial point for ending the 300 year long reign of the English in Aquitaine. In the 16th century, the first vines were planted on these historical and blood soaked grounds. Chateau Batailley's 6ha park was designed by Barillet-Deschamps, Napoleon III's park architect, in 1850. In 1855 Napoleon III created the classification for the Paris World exhibition, and Batailley was selected together with the 60 best Medoc Estates to form the Grand Cru Classé 1855 Classification.

 

A classic Pauillac wine with Cabernet Sauvignon predominant and 18 months oak ageing. Now 7 years after the vintage it is beginning to come round but will be even better after another 2 or 3 years.

Written Notes

Dark purple red with violet hue and black core. Well concentrated nose, rich aroma reminiscent of ripe plums, black cherries, excellent toasting aroma and fine hints of vanilla, cloves and gingerbread. On the palate well structured with excellent depth and length, the best Batailley ever tasted en primeur. This wine confirms the very positive evolution of the last decade on style and quality. 96
