Producer Note
The vineyards of Batailley today comprise about 60 hectares, dominated by
Cabernet Sauvignon. Batailley is the flagship of the family Castéja and Borie-
Manoux. The name is derived from a battle fought on this territory during the 100-
years war in the 14th century. Batailley's wine is an intensive Pauillac typically with
blackcurrant and a robust body. The wine continues to obtain very high rankings
and recommendations from the international wine press.
Vineyard
Château Batailley is one of the oldest Estates in Pauillac. Its name goes back to the
last battle of the Hundred Years' war in Medoc, which took place on the plateau
that descends to Chateau Latour. The house, which was remodelled in the XVIIIth
century, is surrounded by a beautiful park of six hectares, designed by the famous
Barillet Deschamps. The area under vine is 58 hectares. The vineyard faces the
Château on a beautiful gravel plateau. This great soil of thin gravel has natural
drainage, which makes it perfect for growing Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit
Verdot.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand harvested with great care and vinified in a plot-sized vat
room. The wine was aged in French oak barrels, 50% of which were new, for a period
of 18 months. The wine was bottled at the Château. The annual production is
300,000 bottles.
