Château Batailley 2018 – Pauillac Grand Cru Classé

Château Batailley 2018 – Pauillac Grand Cru Classé

The nose is aromatic, elegant and offers a certain straightness (full of elegance), a controlled power and finesse. It reveals notes of ripe wild blackberry, violet, lily and small notes of wild strawberry associated with touches of small pulpy blue fruits, a hint of pulpy blue plum as well as fine hints of vanilla and a very discreet hint of hazelnut. The palate is fruity, elegant, fresh and offers minerality, juiciness, tension (full of finesse), richness (but full of justness/finesse), a small creamy side. On the palate this wine expresses notes of pulpy/fleshy blackberry, creamy raspberry and small notes of cassis associated with touches of small bright/creamy blue fruits, cornflower, lily as well as hints of chocolate, caramelization and a fine hint of hazelnut. An imperceptible saline hint, gourmandize, chew, a discreet hint of green cardamom and chocolate on the persistence.
