Château Batailley Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

$69.95

The finest Batailley I have had in many years, the dense purple-colored 2009 exhibits a boatload of tannin as well as sweet, caramelized, black currant fruit intermixed with hints of charcoal, cedarwood and smoke, a full-bodied mouthfeel and the aforementioned high, but sweet, well-integrated tannin displaying no jaggedness... it can be one of the longest-lived Pauillacs...

The 2018 Spring Confrerie dinner was a wonderful time with some great Alsatian wines (and non-Alsatian wines) and fantastic food! Drinking wonderfully! I believe this had about 3 hours of bottle decanting before it was served and that must have been the sweet spot. Incredibly floral on the nose with a touch of classic left bank leather and tobacco. Well integrated tannins, blackberries, currant, plum, and a jelly note on the finish. Really enjoyed this.

Delicious, slightly earthy, blackcurrent and blackberries. Good depth and very open right now, as has been the case for a few 2009s I've tasted recently.

Earthy, tobacco, tart red fruit, a little green pepper, hint of coffee. Drinking well with a 2 hr decant.
