    July 29, 2021 - Decanted for an hour. Deep red, faint orange hint on edge, thin drops cassis, vanilla, gunpowder aroma. Cassis, vanilla and oak taste. Splendid ripe fruit, supple tannins, long aftertaste. Ready to drink now.

  • rjsmall Likes this wine:

    December 6, 2020 - Deep, dark, dense red colour. Cassis, blackcurrant, pencil and a touch of green pepper on nose. Rounded in mouth with cassis and vanilla oak along with green pepper. Very long finish with drying tannins. Drinking well with a good amount of life left.

  • Corporateslaves Likes this wine: 90 points

    August 14, 2020 - Nice cassis nose and ready to drink with only a very short decant. Quite dark, dark fruits, chocolate, well integrated and reasonable balance. Very typical Batailley style.
