The 2015 Chateau Batailley Grand Cru Classe is a wine of class, pedigree and nuance. The 2015 Batailley wine from Pauillac is superb. This Pauillac wine beams of supporting tannin give the dark purplish flavors striking energy and cut. Graphite, smoke, violet, mint, dark cherry and plum notes continue to open up in the glass. The Chateau Batailley wine is a Pauillac with distinct Saint-Julien leanings, and that is exactly what comes across here.
The 2015 Chateau Batailley wine is a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot, matured in 60% new oak. It was picked between 21 September until 2 October.
