Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, August 2000
Beautiful wine. Very dark ruby-red. Wonderful blackberry, mineral and violet aromas. Full-bodied, with round and velvety tannins and a long, beautifully fruity finish.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2005. –JS

Tasted at The Sampler’s Batailley vertical. The nose is has muted tobacco, sage, mushroom and smoke aromas but lacking the rounded ebullient fruit one usually finds on this vintage. It begins to open with further aeration... Tasted at The Sampler’s Batailley vertical. The nose is has muted tobacco, sage, mushroom and smoke aromas but lacking the rounded ebullient fruit one usually finds on this vintage. It begins to open with further aeration with wild mint and graphite – becoming more Pauillac with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a bucolic entry, nice weight in the mouth, a dash of black pepper livening things up, fleshing out a little towards the savoury, chestnut-tinged finish. This is the best bottle of 1990 Batailley that I have encountered.
