2012 Château Batailley, Cru Classé Pauillac
A staunch favourite at Lay & Wheeler, Chateau Batailley makes traditionally-styled Pauillac and hasn’t failed to please in 2012. Vibrant aromas of black fruit, forest floor and creamy mocha lead into a texturally satisfying palate of concentrated cassis and blueberry. Fine, ripe tannins are cleverly integrated and temper the bursts of fresh acidity. Hints of dark chocolate and cedar are revealed in this finely-balanced wine’s persistent finish.
