Tasting Notes

The 2016 Château Batailley is a classically styled Pauillac with a nose of graphite, blackberries, and tobacco. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied with firm tannins and a long, elegant finish. The flavours of black fruit and tobacco are well-balanced with hints of mint and cedar.

The wine is best enjoyed after a few years of bottle age, but it can be enjoyed young if decanted for at least an hour. It is a versatile wine that can be paired with a variety of dishes, such as grilled steak, lamb chops, or roasted game.

Viticulture

The Château Batailley vineyard is located in the heart of the Pauillac appellation, on a gravelly plateau with excellent drainage. The vines are on average 40 years old and are planted at a density of 9,000 vines per hectare.

The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted in the vineyard. The winemaking is traditional, with fermentation in oak barrels and aging for 18 months in a combination of new and old oak barrels.

The 2016 Vintage

The 2016 vintage in Bordeaux was a very good one, with warm, sunny weather throughout the growing season. The grapes reached perfect maturity, resulting in wines with ripe fruit flavours and good structure.

The 2016 Château Batailley is a fine example of the vintage, and it is sure to please fans of Pauillac wines. It is a wine that will age gracefully for many years to come.
