Chateau Batailley Grand Cru Classé 2015 Review

This is an all-caps stellar wine from Pauillac and it’s under $100! I feel this wine has a soul and when you pour a glass it offers it for you to enjoy. It is deep, full-bodied and extremely elegant. The acidity is perfect and the interwoven tannins hold together its impeccable structure. The nose has descriptors, for sure — black currant, leather, tobacco, white pepper — but all that matters is the sum of those parts coming together and physically affecting your posture as you take it in. This bottle is why we humans fall in love with wine and it still has years to evolve.
