Chateau Batailley Pauillac 2011



The 2011 vintage in Bordeaux is considerably more modest than its predecessors in 2009 and 2010. This does mean however that it is (moderately) affordable as a consequence. Initially one dimensional, this Batailley benefited quite substantially from aeration. With time in the glass, it provides sound drinking with typical left bank Bordeaux impressions of blackcurrant and cedar. There are some earth and savoury overtones, but more generally, a lack of intensity and energy in its bearing. Rating: Good. Abv: 13%. Price: $80.
