Description

2016 Chateau Batailley 5e Cru Classe Pauillac AOC, Château Batailley

Château Batailley, a 5th Cru of the classification of 1855, is Borie-Manoux’s and the Castéja-family’s flagship. The name is derived from the battle („bataille“) that took place where the chateau and vineyard are today during the 100-years war around 1453. In this battle, the French re-conquered the neighbouring Chateau Latour from the English, a crucial point for ending the 300 year long reign of the English in Aquitaine. In the 16th century, the first vines were planted on these historical and blood soaked grounds. Chateau Batailley’s 5ha-park was designed by Barillet- Deschamps, Napoleon III’s park architect, in 1850. In 1855 Napoleon III created the classification for the Grands Crus Classés of the Medoc. And Batailley was knighted Grand Cru Classé. Batailley is a classic and a very typical Pauillac, with Cassis flavours and very good structure.
