Suckling über: Chateau Batailley 5eme Cru

-- Suckling: A very cabernet-driven red with currants, light cedar, vanilla and flowers. It’s full-bodied, tight and powerful. Impressive finish. Classic. 74% cabernet sauvignon, 25% merlot and 1% petit verdot. 95-96/100


Weinwisser über: Chateau Batailley 5eme Cru

-- Weinwisser: Dichtes Purpur, satt in der Mitte. Verführerisches Bouquet mit Veilchen und reifen Brombeeren, dahinter Heidelbeergelee und Nougatpralinen. Am saftigen Gaumen mit cremiger Textur und genial stützender Rasse, dazu stützendes, kakaoartiges Tannin und reifer Extrakt. Im gebündelten Finale zerstossene schwarze Beeren, der Wein ist schlank wie ein Pfeil und wird immer länger, eine volle Ladung Cassis und herrliche Terroirwürze im Rückaroma runden ihn ab. Kein Wunder, dass diese Delikatesse aus Pauillac so eine grosse Fangemeinde hat. Preis-Leistung stimmt hier einfach! 18.5/20 95-96/100


Wine Cellar Insider über: Chateau Batailley 5eme Cru

-- Wine Cellar Insider: Cassis, vanilla, cigar smoke, tobacco and forest leaf scents kick off the perfume. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, concentrated and tannic. The tannins are ripe, round and refined, allowing the wine to build and expand while it lingers. If it continues to develop along these lines, it will prove to be an even better wine, deserving a higher score. The wine was made from blending 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. 94-96/100


Neal Martin über: Chateau Batailley 5eme Cru

-- Neal Martin: The 2019 Batailley, picked 16 September until 7 October, has an impressive bouquet with plenty of concentration, though it manages to remain the traditional classic style associated with this Pauillac estate. Blackberry, forest floor and freshly rolled tobacco burst from the glass, demonstrating fine purity and delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins. I was most impressed by the balance and poise, almost as if it has a newfound sophistication very evident on the finish. This is a superb Batailley, one of the finest that I have encountered in recent years. 94-96/100


Decanter über: Chateau Batailley 5eme Cru

-- Decanter: More Pauillac character than the Lynch Moussas, this is where you get the characteristic slate, pencil lead and menthol against the beautiful rich cassis and a confident tannic frame. I've had a number of 2009 and 2010 vintages of Batailley recently that have totally sung at 10 years old and you can easily see that this vintage will deliver the same enjoyment. 94/100


Parker über: Chateau Batailley 5eme Cru

-- Parker: Casting a deep garnet-purple color, the 2019 Batailley offers up a beautiful perfume of candied violets, chocolate box and star anise over a core of cassis, stewed black cherries, espresso and wild blueberries plus a hint of garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a solid foundation of ripe, grainy tannins and lovely freshness supporting the generous black fruit preserves and coffee-laced layers, finishing long and fragrant. 93-95/100
