Lions de Batailley 2014

"Lions de Batailley" is the second wine of Château Batailley and draws its name from the two Lions who guard the gates of Château Batailley's main entrance.

Château Batailley, a 5th Grand Cru Classé of the classification of 1855, is the Castéja family's and Borie-Manoux’s flagship. It is one of the oldest estates in the Médoc. 

Wine Production

Lions de Batailey comes mainly from young vines, as well as from wines issued from non-associated plots in the final Grand Vin blend.

Tasting Notes

Lions de Batailley is produced from a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon, a grape varietal which grows well on Batailley's gravel soil. Balanced, silky tannins with acidity and length. It is a wine that drinks easily young, but will also age well.
