The Comedown: Bordeaux 2011 Ten-Years-On (Apr 2022)

The 2011 Batailley has a strict, fresh, graphite tinged bouquet with more fruité than its peers, very well defined and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins, taut and linear, very good tension here with that vein of graphite running through to the finish. Classy. Tasted blind at the annual 10-Year-On tasting.
