    September 22, 2019 - Still some life in it. Nose and palate has graphite/pencil shavings

    August 10, 2019 - Maybe just starting to reach the end of its drinking window. A bit muted.

    June 19, 2019 - It's doing well. Still lots of stuffing there.

    May 20, 2019 - Deep crimson red. Robust nose that shows smoky, mineral and dark red fruit elements. A bit of cedar / lead pencil as well. Very masculine and stark. Gritty texture. Could use a bit more sweetness to buffer the rugged skeleton. A tough wine. Someone wrote that this is not a fun wine. I concur. (85)

    March 5, 2019 - likely seen better days - a little tired but delicious nevertheless - drink up

    (Chateau Batailley Pauillac) This is showing quite a nutty nose, with a wealth of deep fruit, although sill with the confit character typical of the vintage, whereas at the UGC tasting in 2005 it was really very subdued on the nose. This is markedly different (and better) today. Quite fresh on entry, deeply fruited, with rich extract and a nice tannic structure. Good grip. This once muted, brawny wine now shows a much more appealing, firm but not over-the-top style. A much more solid performance here.

    (Chateau Batailley Pauillac) Subtle, rather muted on the nose. Not brimming with texture or character on the palate, and showing very firm, prominent tannins too. Decent weight, and rather firm acidity, but really all structure and little else at present. Brawny style. Merely quite good.
