The 2013 is a blend of 94 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 4 % Merlot and 2% Petit Verdo
A blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the picking commenced with the Merlot on the 24th September, for the Cabernet we started on the 29th September, finishing on 11th October and the Petit Verdot the 12th October. This Batailley has a ripe nose of blackberry, black plum, sandalwood, mint and just a hint of white flowers, with a refined nose, which is very Pauillac in style. The palate is medium-bodied, rich with round supple tannins, and with an elegant finish. A benchmark Batailley this is ready to drink but still has a life of three decades ahead of it.
