Description

Full and refined, a fine Pauillac wine

The estate

The estate’s name, Château Batailley, refers to the Hundred Years' War as one of the battles occurred on the estate’s land in 1453. Château Batailley became a winery in the 17th century. This 1855 5th Cru Classé is produced in the Pauillac appellation, on the left bank of Bordeaux.

The vineyard

Château Batailley 2021 is a Pauillac wine that stems from a 60-hectare vineyard. The vines are planted on silica and gravel soils.

The vintage

A particularly wet winter preceded a spring marked by a major frost on the 7th and 8th of April, which had an impact on the vines, whose budbreak had begun on April 2nd. Although May was hot and dry, which aided the flowering period, conditions in June were cool and rainy. The estate's teams increased their efforts to preserve the vineyard’s healthy condition. The weather in July and August was variable and cool. The dampness at the beginning of September gave way to a pleasant month of October, during which the sunshine and low rainfall helped to refine the ripening process. Harvested at optimal ripeness, the Cabernet grapes are fresh and intense, offering a superb tannic structure and a rare persistence.

Vinification and ageing

The wine is aged exclusively in barrels (60% new, 40% second fill barrels).

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (76%)

Merlot (20%)

Petit Verdot (2%)

Cabernet Franc (2%).
