Parker (92)

From the famous château estate of the Castéja family, the 2012 Batailley is a very strong effort. This is a big-time sleeper of the vintage. A dense purple wine with loads of crème de cassis, blueberry notes, background forest floor and cedar, this is a strong effort from Batailley and may well usher in a new era for this fifth-growth chateau that is capable of producing great wine. The tannins are sweet and the wine has an opulence and richness that is rare for a Médoc in 2012. Drink it over the next 25 years.

Winespectator / James Suckling (90)

Offers a broad feel, with a cocoa edge carrying the plum and blackberry core, while roasted sandalwood, tobacco and leather accents line the finish. A bit earthy in tone, but shows good flesh and length.
