Château Battailley 2008
Serious stuff this grand cru from grand Pauillac makes a fantastic fist of a troublesome vintage. Trademark cassis or even Ribena on the nose, a generous seasoning of new oak that comes through in toasty, vanilla notes. Firm but generous fruit on the palate and grippy tannins that soften with a bit of air.
