2017 Château Batailley, Cru Classé Pauillac

Dark fruit, graphite and cured meat, with a touch of austerity. But there's a nice power here - this is well judged claret.

TASTING NOTES

This is a classically structured young Pauillac with tannins that roll over the finish. Medium to full body and a bright aftertaste.
