Old Wines [1959 - 1982 ] (Vancouver): No Formal Tasting Note This wine was disappointing, the one thing I would say is the mouth feel on this wine was amazing, the texture fantastic, the colour still dark and fresh looking, but in the mouth a touch of fruit then it falls of a cliff, No Finish no nothing after the initial 1sec fruit then drying tannin no fruit no finish
Chateau Batailley Tasting (The Sampler): This has a light delicate nose of rubber muddled in with red fruits. Dry palate with a moderate-light body. It seems the fruit has left this wine and only left flavors of black tea and worn saddle. The tannins are chunky and the acidity is slightly elevated. Still this is very much wine and quite enjoyable. Short finish. I just have to think about how this wines best days are behind it. Drink now. Excellent Quality. 88 pts.
Ah, what a nice wine, well aged, sure nothing exceptional but still enjoyable and very tasty. If you like you can add an aditional point for the experience of drinking an wine like this... After opening a strong smell of leather, wood, forrest. This changed to a nice smell of an aged Bordeaux, no strong fruits anymore, but you wouldn´t expect this from a wine in this price category at that age. Still there, you can drink as it won´t get better, but no need to hurry. We had it to a variation of cheese, which from time to time was too strong for the wine. Open for 1,5 hours, no sign of fading until the bottle was empty.
