    March 10, 2018 - Still very drinkable, bottle with good fill. Little brownish on the rim, tertiary aromas, some leather, tar and fall leaves. Classic Bordeaux, but fading away now...

    September 1, 2017 - Good levels VTS. Good bottle from a serous source. Light red colour. Needed some air. Not unpleasant to drink. Seems ways past its prime.

    October 29, 2015 - Fill level into neck/ top shoulder. No formal notes - over dinner. Well evolved in terms of colour, still healthy and bright. Lots of spices, leather, sweet tobacco and forest notes on the nose. On the palate soft and mellow without much fruit or grip. Medium finish. Past its best based on this bottle - drink up. 87-89

    March 4, 2011 - Mid garnet, fading a little on the rim. Blackcurrant, leather and a touch of spice on the nose. Follows through to the attack and mid-palate. Quite light, reasonable acidity, fading slightly but still enjoyable. The least good of the three bottles I've tried, but none-the-less stood up well to loin of hare in a rich sauce. ***

    January 14, 2010 - Chateau Batailley Dinner (The Square, London): Sweet, mature red fruit on nose. Quite soft and savoury on the mid-palate, but for me lacking intensity and a bit chewy on teh finish. Others liked this more. **1/2

    January 14, 2010 - Neil's Batailley Bash (The Square, London): Lovely garnet. Smooth, harmonious, very balanced nose. Smooth tobacco and mellow fruit. Lovely for the vintage. ***1/2 possibly ****

    September 4, 2009 - Lovely mature claret. Some cedar and spice on the nose with a touch of damson; palate smooth, mellow, mature, rounded, tannins fully resolved. Good acidity and beautifully balanced. Quite long. Very decent and more enjoyable (albeit slightly less sweetly fruited) than an 82 last Christmas. Lovely. ***1/2
