The finest Batailley I have had in many years, the dense purple-colored 2009 exhibits a boatload of tannin as well as sweet, caramelized, black currant fruit intermixed with hints of charcoal, cedarwood and smoke, a full-bodied mouthfeel and the aforementioned high, but sweet, well-integrated tannin displaying no jaggedness. Batailley often requires considerable patience as it can be one of the longest-lived Pauillacs. Atypically for Batailley, the 2009 should be ready to drink in 5-7 years and keep for three decades. - Robert Parker

The Batailley '09 has a lovely cedar and mint-scented bouquet - well defined with just a little creamy oak to be subsumed. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, a lovely succulent core of blackberry and strawberry fruit and a harmonious, silky finish. It has calmed down since I tasted it in barrel, but it is a long-term Pauillac that should be afforded cellaring for at least a decade. Tasted January 2013.

Smooth black currant fruit with great density as well as superripeness. The wine is charming, while still having a powerful structure. Still a relative value in Pauillac, Batailley is now showing real class.

Blackberry, dark chocolate and currants on the nose, follow through to a full body, with beautifully polished tannins and a long caressing finish. Fresh and refined. Best ever from here. Always excellent value. Try after... Blackberry, dark chocolate and currants on the nose, follow through to a full body, with beautifully polished tannins and a long caressing finish.

A chewy core of black currant, tobacco and roasted apple wood stretches out through the grip-framed finish. Fresh acidity rides underneath to keep it all lively. A solid version, with a throwback hint. Best from 2013... A chewy core of black currant, tobacco and roasted apple wood stretches out through the grip-framed finish.
