Chateau Batailley 2002

87 points

Pauillac, Bordeaux, France.  13%

This wine has some depth, and the balance is good.  I’m happy to have a few bottles in my cellar.  However, it lacks the excitement of some of its neighbours.  2002 favoured left bank cabernet oriented areas like Pauillac with some wines showing lovely purity and cleansing acidity, while this is a bit muted.
