Ch Batailley 1975 BBR own label (review)

90 points

Still good colour, some red at core. Delicate nose with some classic herbal, blackcurrant, tea leaf notes–but ripe. Clean, palate of good length. Appropriately light bodied (? alcohol–prob c11%), fine tannins with good length. Not dry or hard. Well preserved for vintage. Interesting.

Dow’s 1985 Colour suggests it is forward. Muscat and mineral nose, but some grip and reserve as per Dow. Fully developed. Good. 87pts

Grossot Polish Hill Reisling 2001 Well known to all, i’m sure. Young (in stelvin). All the right adjectives or lime etc. Acidity initially prominent but okay. Lovely. Good for another 5 years. 87pts

Monbazillac Tirecul la Graviere 1996 Mature, sauternes-like wine. Full botrytis, orange nose. Sweet but drying a tad– perfect now. Excellent. 91pts
