The 2015 Batailley is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot cropped at 48 hl/ha picked between 17-30 September. Matured in around 55-60% new oak, it has a very focused, intense bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, cedar and mineral notes, perhaps a little Margaux-like in style as those violets blossom with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well-judged acidity, a touch of white pepper here lending edginess, gradually building to a very composed and structured finish. This is an excellent Batailley, meliorated by the introduction of a second wine, that continues the upswing in quality over the last six or seven years. I would not be surprised if this settles at the top of my banded score once in bottle. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2022-2050

Wow. The shows a new level of excellence with mint, mineral and currant character. Full body, super fine tannins and a savory finish. New definition here. Precision. New second wine from this estate moved up the quality.

This has nice energy, with a brambly frame around the notes of cherry paste and currant preserves. There's a solid bolt of iron through the finish, with lots of tobacco. A touch old-school and solidly done. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

48 hl/ha. Very dark crimson. Attractive fresh minerality. Many steps up from Lions de Batailley. Racy and quite muscular. Not very intense but well balanced and with sufficient energy. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2024-2038

Good broad fruit and depth of flavour from old vines. Always forward at this stage, but it gains in barrel and ages very well. Apr 2016, Steven Spurrier, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2021-2035

Soft, attractive and easy on the palate, this fig and orange peel-scented blend is supple and beguiling on the palate, with scented vanilla oak and some underlying acidity. A good wine for the medium term. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2028
