Winedoctor

  • By Chris Kissack
    April 2012, (See more on Winedoctor...) 15.5-16. points

    (Château Batailley (Pauillac)) The blend here is Cabernet Sauvignon 85%, Merlot 11%, Petit Verdot 3%, Cabernet Franc 1%. Yield 38 hl/ha. There is some attractive and rather perfumed fruit here, with plums, forest fruits, ripe, not overdone. The palate has a similarly attractive, well-honed character, with good definition and lift, and most importantly it has a linear and defined shape with lots of well judged tannins slid underneath, and appealingly bright acidity. I've not been convinced by the Batailley renaissance recently even though I know it has an increased following in recent years. To me it always fell down on its midpalate definition and vigour, but not in this vintage. This is a really lovely effort. Well done.
