Château Batailley Lions de Batailley Pauillac 2016
It's a good second wine from the 5th Growth Chateau Batailley. Full of mid-palate weight and black fruits, just perhaps a little overly grilled which covers up some of the attractively savoury fruit, but that will settle and there is plenty to enjoy. Lions de Batailley is produced from a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon, a grape varietal which grows well on Batailley's gravel soil. Balanced, silky tannins with acidity and length. It is a wine that drinks easily young, but will also age well.Rated 90 points by Decanter.
