Château Batailley 2014, Pauillac
£59.95 per bottle
"The 2014 Batailley has a slightly more mature color than its peers. The nose is completely different: much more red fruit, dried blood, white pepper and warm gravel scents. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, rigid tannin. The acidity is nicely judged although I find the finish here lacking the delineation and precision of its peers. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. 2020 - 2040"
