2010 Ch. Batailley, Pauillac

Ch. Batailley, Pauillac
The 2010 Batailley wine is absolutely brilliant! I might just leave the note at that actually. Batailley is always faithful and true and it always delivers a great glass of proper Paulliac without pomp or fan fairs. It is not pretentious and you know (really, really hope this year) that you won't have to sell a vital organ or precious family heirloom to afford a glass of it.

This is text-book Bordeaux: safe, steady, dependable and we all love it for it. This year, however, our beloved Ch. Batailley is, dare I say it, sexy! Not just ‘a little coquettish smile from beneath a slightly over-long fringe sexy’ either. She has been to the gym, slicked her hair back and put on her little black party dress. Beautifully seductive and mouthwatering, it is brimming with perfectly ripe, but not pushed, delicious Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. It is indulgent but with great poise and presence, and a sumptuous, cool and deliciously long finish. She's out on the town and I'm going with her! This is the first wine on my personal ‘To Buy’ list.

Ch. Batailley, Pauillac
The 2010 Batailley is deep, slightly smoky cassis fruit and a touch of violets, full rather meaty flavours, both roundness and depth from this very reliable château.

Ch. Batailley, Pauillac
Tasted 17 Feb: Very dark purple. Very dark purple elderberry notes. Sweet and round and a bit of spice. Lots of fine tannin.

Tasted blind 8 Apr: Bright, deep purplish crimson. Ripe fruit with a slight smoky note. Very sweet and fluid. Not the most concentrated but a good example that you really can’t go too wrong with Pauillac 2010. Just a tiny bit of green on the finish. But super clean and fresh. (Score: 16.5 18-28)

Ch. Batailley, Pauillac
Made in a more charming style than the normally backward, rather formidably tannic wines of Batailley, this 2010 is an endearing, elegant wine, but it has no shortage of power, richness and intensity. It displays loads of beautiful cassis, cedar and Christmas fruitcake notes along with impressive purity, texture and a full-bodied mouthfeel. Usually much more austere, this vintage seems to have produced a richer, more layered and opulent style of Batailley that can be approached in 3-5 years and consumed over the following 25 years.
(92 Robert Parker- Wine Advocate- Feb 2013)

Elegant crushed rock, red and black currant, spice box and earth notes result in a classic Pauillac to smell and taste. Dark ruby/purple-colored, slightly austere because of the robust tannins, beautifully pure and built for the long haul, patience of 5-7 years will be required and this 2010 should keep for 25+ years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Always delicious! I've never been disappointed by a bottle of Batailley. A good value proposition that offers firm flavours of ripe fruit with subtle undercurrents of woodland and granite against a backdrop of silky tannins; not something you have to work hard to get into! A bottle that you can open and know that everyone will enjoy without breaking the bank. 19 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just brilliant. Outstanding value. All graphite and a classy Pauillac edge on the nose. This is not a bruiser: it is elegantly silky with a beguiling lift to it. Very impressive in that it tastes of pure Pauillac rather than fancy winemaking. The texture is like a fine woven steel embroidery: power and strength combines with a silky elegance. Excellent. 24 February 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A true Paulliac with good depth for such a young wine I thoroughly enjoyed this wine although it seems it should only get better with age. It has a depth and a richness that some other Pauillacs that are older and from similar chateaux do not always have. 07 January 2014
