  • Robert Parker, April 1996, Score: 82-85

    The 1995 possesses lower acidity and riper fruit than the 1994 as well as medium body, a compactness and austerity, as well as more depth and texture than the lean 1994. It requires 5-6 years of cellaring, and it will last for 12-15 years, but do not expect much fruit, glycerin, or charm.This estate continues to have its ups and downs, seemingly oblivious to the fact that wines such as the 1994 and 1995 are just not exciting enough to compete in the demanding fine wine market.All of the wines in this segment were tasted between March 19 and March 28 in Bordeaux. Most of the important wines from both the 1994 and 1995 vintages were tasted three separate times during my ten-day stay in Bordeaux. Drink: 2001-2011.

  • Robert Parker, January 1998, Score: 87

    One of the finest recent efforts from Batailley, the 1995 displays an opaque purple color, a sweet, cassis, cherry, spicy-scented nose, and an excellent, medium to full-bodied personality with high extract, sweet tannin, and plenty of muscle. This wine needs 7-8 years of cellaring; it should keep for 20-25 years. Last tasted 1/97. Drink: 2004-2025.

  • Robert Parker, February 1998, Score: 87

    The 1995 has turned out well, displaying a dark ruby/purple color, and aromas of minerals, black currants, and smoky new oak. In the mouth, it is a medium-weight, backward, well-delineated Pauillac with plenty of tannin, and a true vin de garde style. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2015. This estate has been fashioning better wines over recent years ... consumers take note.

Owned by the Castéja family, Batailley has been managed by Borie-Manoux, a leading Bordelais négociant, since the 1960s. For many years it was not traded amongst traditional Bordeaux circles which contributed to its lesser known stature. This has changed only over the past couple of years. For some time now, Château Batailley has represented one of the best values in Bordeaux. Traditional and stylish, it often embodies the quintessential Pauillac spirit offering distinguished aromas of cedar box, and cassis enveloped in a finely structured yet fresh palate.Read less

Region

Pauillac

Due south of St Estèphe lies the appellation of Pauillac, the king of Left Bank communes. It is home to three first growths as well as a plethora of other classified growths. Pauillac's renowned well-draining, gravelly soils enable its dominant grape Cabernet Sauvignon to reach fantastic heights of complexity and concentration. As a result, Pauilac's wines tend to be full-bodied with compact tannins and good freshness. Its aromatics are often what one associates with classic Bordeaux: pencil shavings, black currant and occasional mint. Some of the most famous châteaux of the commune are Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
