What are the specificities of Château Batailley?

The name of Domaine Batailley comes from "Bataille (battle)". This battle of 1453 over the vines and the Château, the Hundred Years' War. During this war, France reconquered the famous Château Latour, at the time occupied by the English. This signed the end of British possession in Aquitaine. Today, with the fine effort that results from the association with the oenologist Denis Dubourdieu, Mr Philippe Castéja gives birth to a superb, elegant, stylish Pauillac in a classic form. The association of the two enthusiasts has allowed the Château Batailley to gain in definition and precision during the last few vintages. It is a great wine for laying down, it ages extremely well, typical of the grands crus from Pauillac. We can also add that it is more accessible in terms of price, compared to other great wines of the appellation.
