When famed wine critic Robert Parker tasted this wine back in 2009, he commented that it was 'built for the long haul' and will 'last for two decades', and he wasn't wrong, despite 2006 being a tough vintage for many, this cabernet dominated Pauillac has developed into a stunning glass of wine.

Over the past 15 years the wine has evolved considerably; building in complexity, with aromas of tobacco, leather, dark currant and red berry fruit, mint and a herbaceous quality. It's rich and rewarding on the palate, with dark fruit still dominating, initially at least, with a hint of lighter, red-berries. The initial fruit character then moves slightly aside to reveal secondary flavours; a hint of chai tea and that classic 'forest floor' character which is the preserve of only the finest, mature clarets. The finale is garnished with a delicate waft of fine, warming French oak and mouth coating grip on the seemingly endless finish. Time has been a a very good friend to this wine.

'A real sleeper of the vintage and a sensational effort from the Casteja family, Batailley has turned out a complete, powerful, classic Pauillac, with oodles of black currant fruit as well as hints of new saddle leather, toast, chocolate, and forest floor. Full-bodied, dense, and built for the long haul, this wine should be reasonably drinkable in 4-5 years and last for two decades. Good value.'  Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate -  91pts 'Outstanding'

If you're looking for the perfect claret to serve at your next grand dinner, then you've just found it.
