2003 Ch. Batailley, Pauillac

Ch. Batailley, Pauillac
Deriving its name from a battle fought here between the British and French six centuries ago, this popular wine has not disappointed its legion of fans in 2003. The wonderfully ripe Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) is softened by 28% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. A rich, fruity nose is followed by a palate with Batailley's characteristic weight and reassuringly dense, textured red and black fruit, creamy oak and a very long finish. Excellent value, as always.Château Batailley

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tasted better Opens up after a hour plus decant. Nice starting aroma, initial tastes of purpley sweet spices, lead pencil, dark fruits, burnt toast and herbs. The mid palate disappointedly ends with a rather dusty dry 'hit' but fades with a long and not unpleasant long finish. In summary, a decent bottle of wine. I think you can do better at the price point and I think further cellaring won't achieve any noticeable further improvements. 30 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 2003 Ch. Batailley, Pauillac A really spoiling bottle of claret - dare I say..."almost too good to share!" I think it will get better too. 20 August 2014
