"Shows beautiful, ripe cabernet aromas with currants, plums, meat and smoke. Flowers, too. Full body, deep and ripe fruit and exquisite, ripe tannins. Flavorful finish. Tight right now, but shows excellent potential. Best ever. Try after 2024." James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com (223), February 2019

"Brooding richness both nose and palate have concentrated black fruits. Rich fruit in the middlethe tannins are firm but ripe the back palate has depth and sweetness but there is enough acidity to balance the finish is quite restrained. 2026-43." Derek Smedley MW, DerekSmedleyMW.co.uk, April 2017

"The 2016 Batailley is a blend of 12% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 85% Cabernet Sauvignon cropped at 50h hectoliters per hectare. Matured in 60% new oak. It has an intense graphite infused bouquet with fine delineation, some freshly picked Pauillac mint coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin that grip the mouth insistently; with graphite and tobacco-infused black fruit dominating, this a classically styled Batailley in the vein of previous vintages with the elegance coming through towards the finish." Neal Martin, April 2017
