Community Tasting Notes 3

    January 26, 2011 - Chateau Batailley Tasting (The Sampler): This has a real subdued nose. It hides in its shell and needs significant patience to coax out light notes of saddle, sweat and red garden berries.
    Dry palate with acidity that sticks out just a touch. Lots of chocolatey mocha flavors mixed in with Darjeeling, cranberry and raspberry notes. Soft, worn mouth-feel gives a good impression of the wine. The tannins are still healthy and tuck into the meat of the wine very nicely.
    Beautiful. Really classy. Drink now.
    Outstanding Quality. 93 pts.

    January 14, 2010 - Chateau Batailley Dinner (The Square, London): Attractive nose, sweet with rich earthy fruit, notes of tea. Mature and sweet on initial entry, still some chewy tannins on the mid-palate which come to dominate the slightly short, chewy finish. Holding up better than most of the older wines tonight though. **1/2
