    May 11, 2022 - Appearance: Bright and clear, the wine is of medium ruby colour, with fading rims and legs.
    Nose: Clean, with medium (+) intensity aromas of black fruit of blackberry and dark plum, red fruit of cherries, herbaceous notes of bell pepper, animal notes of leather, maturity notes of tobacco and savoury, sweet spice of bay leaves, pungent spice of liquorice. The wine is developing.
    Palate: Dry with medium acidity, the wine has medium tannin of ripe and silky texture, medium in alcohol and medium body, with medium (+) intensity flavours of black fruit of blackberry and dark cherries, sweet spice of clove, kernel notes of coffee, maturity notes of tobacco. The wine has a medium (+) finish.
    Conclusion: Very good quality Pauillac, after opening for 3 hours the aromas is very appealing, with good intensity and showing lots of complexity, and showing clear indication on the presence of Cabernet Franc in the blend. On the palate the wine is elegant, juicy and well-structured, with nice tannin but not excessively harsh, showing good concentration in flavours and a fairly long finish. It is ready to drink now but can further develop for another 5-7 years.

    April 3, 2022 - Decanted 60 mins. Crimson red. Quite savoury to start, graphite and bitter herbs. With food the fruit really shone through, deep cassis. Really singing and very nice.

    March 31, 2022 - This was bottle no 11 since arrivage in fairy regular intervals. Poured into decanter and drank over 2h. The 09 Batailley has been a beautiful Pauillac at almost any stage of its evolution (the exception being some time in 2014/2014 where the oak was overwhelming). Interestingly the wine seems to gaining a bit of weight after appearing barely medium bodied 12-24 months ago. I love the fact that this has only 13% alcohol in the often (too) rich and exuberant 2009 Bordeaux vintage. Glad I have another 2 cases left. Drink anytime over the next 20 years.

    March 20, 2022 - Popped and poured, and guzzled in about an hour. Great flavor and within the drinking window, with resolved tannins. Super solid Grand Cru Bordeaux that is on the affordable end.
