The opulence and structure of an exceptional Pauillac

2018 was an exceptional vintage for the Grand Cru Classé of Pauillac, located on the left bank of Bordeaux, Château Batailley.

After a difficult beginning to the year, marked by a very rainy spring and a strong mildew pressure due to late blight in July, a beautiful summer followed, bringing with it plenty of sunshine for 4 months. This helped the fruit to ripen fully. The harvest took place between September 18th and October 9th, yielding grapes whose quality foreshadowed an exceptional vintage.

Blending Cabernet Sauvignon (74%), Merlot (23%) and Petit Verdot (3%), the Château Batailley 2018 offers a great expression of a Pauillac grand vin. 2018 produced wines of a dark and deep colour. The nose seduces with its intense aromas, underlined by the presence of fruit. The palate is powerful and opulent, revealing a massive structure with tannins already perfectly smooth and stretching into a long finish. An exceptional vintage, the Château Batailley 2018 foreshadows a brilliant future ahead of it, made possible by a great ageing potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2018 Batailley is deep garnet-purple in color and offers up bright Morello cherries, black raspberries and redcurrant notes over a cassis and plum preserves core with a waft of dried mint. Full-bodied with a good core of juicy fruit, it has approachable, ripe tannins and a lively lift to the finish.
