ABOUT THE WINE
Chateau Batailley is Borie-Manoux’s and the Castéja-family’s flagship. The name is derived from the battle (“bataille”) that took place where the chateau and vineyard are today during the Hundred Years War, around 1453. Vinification is fairly standard, with hand-harvested grapes fully de-stemmed before fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation takes place partly in tank, partly in barrel, and the wine is then aged in new French oak, 60% new, for about 16 months before bottling. Since 1995, subtle changes have seen the wines achieve more delicacy and purity of fruit-character, resulting in wines of greater finesse which still remain true to their Pauillac roots.

TASTING NOTES
Exceedingly sophisticated; another exceptional example of this estate making the best of a poor vintage to produce a wine of great value and finesse – yet not lacking in classic-Pauillac power. Sweet spice, plum fruit and vanilla and walnuts on the finish.

FOOD PAIRING
Best served with classic meat dishes: veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, and roasted, braised and grilled vegetable dishes.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Dusty and deep, this is a beautifully structured wine – ready for drinking already.
