"Bold and fruity, this is a black-currant-flavored wine with soft tannins. In this vintage, the crisp acidity has also kicked in to give the wine its lift and to balance the ripe flavors. The wine is for the medium term."

"The 2014 Batailley has a slightly more mature color than its peers. The nose is completely different: much more red fruit, dried blood, white pepper and warm gravel scents. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, rigid tannin. The acidity is nicely judged although I find the finish here lacking the delineation and precision of its peers. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting."
