Château Batailley, Pauillac 2005, Bordeaux
Gloriously Pauillac on the nose, dark, rich, medicinal fruit, serious, with hints of spice. Lovely savoury fruit on the palate, mouth-filling and profound, dark fruit, spice and menthol, all wrapped up in a velvety structure.
Good acidity and ripe tannins round this off perfectly. This is beginning to show very well now, precise balance and depth, with good length.
Perfect Sunday lunch Claret. Drink now-2035.
