  • What the experts say...

    Bien structuré et vinifié dans un style traditionnel, le 1996 de Batailley s'annonce par une robe dense de couleur rubis-poupre, et libère, tant au nez qu'en bouche, des arômes de terre, de cèdre et de cassis. Moyennement corsé, il affiche une excellente tenue en milieu de bouche, se montre profond et déploie une finale modérément tannique, ferme, mais pure. (...) Source : Robert Parker (1/99)
