Wine Spectator, 93 points: Has extraordinary aging potential. Extremely backward, but superbly concentrated, with heady aromas of freshly crushed grapes, dry peaches and honey. Full-bodied and very sweet, with masses of spicy lemon and honey...
jamessuckling.com, 91 points: Crushed lemon peel and vanilla. Mandarin and ripe pineapple. Intense and sweet on the palate with a wonderful juicy acidity and good length. This Sauternes is pure and medium and already ready to drink.
jamessuckling.com, 91 points: It's a little short but I am impressed with the character of dried oranges pineapple and spices. It full and round with good acidity and a freshness.
jamessuckling.com, 93 points: (JS92-93 points) Pretty Bastor with dried lemon, orange and spice character. Dried mushrooms too. Full body, medium sweet and a phenolic tension.
Wine Enthusiast, 91 points: One of the undiscovered treats of Pauillac, Batailley has produced a 2008 that shows richness, fresh acidity and delicious black currant fruits. For medium-term aging.
Wine Spectator, 93 points: Ripe and very sleek, with a dense core of cassis, blackberry and anise framed by violet and spice. The long finish drips with juicy fruit and subtle toast, with a flash of iron boding well for cellaring. Shows great...
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 96 points: What I think might end up being the best Beaucastel since the 1990 or 2001, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape offers a full-bodied, decadent style to go with awesome black and blue fruits, garrigue, licorice, crushed flowers...
Wine Spectator, 90 points: Always a really good bottle of claret, this is slightly better than I remember, with lots of concentrated fruit and chocolate character on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long finish.
Wine Spectator, 92 points: What a beautiful and opulent wine. Aromas of chocolate berry and raspberry. Full-bodied with velvety tannins. Long finish. Elegant. Best after 2008. 2000 cases made. –JS
