2000 wine Chateau Batailley, Pauillac, Tasting notes, 91 rate
The Wine Advocate, Tasted at the Batailley vertical tasting at the château, the 2000 Batailley displayed youthful vigor on the nose with boysenberry and damson fruit, incense and iodine. As I remarked when I last tasted this in 2011, there is an opulence here that this estate rarely produced up until this period. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin; this bottle is more backward than others, with firm tannin providing sturdy backbone. It remains a "burly" Pauillac for the vintage, and it is certainly masculine in style. Then again, that is a leitmotif of the millennial vintage. As such, I can envisage this mellowing in four to six year's time, whereupon it will have the substance to give drinking pleasure over many years. Tasted April 2016. mature up to 2045
The wines of Pauillac are wines of deep color.
These wines are powerful and full-bodied, thanks in particular to the blend where the Cabernet Sauvignon expresses its strength.
The resulting tannic structure gives these wines a remarkable ability to age.
The addition of Merlot gives Pauillac wine a roundness and fruitiness. After a period of aging,
these wines develop a bouquet of great complexity.
