Chateau Batailley Pauillac 2006

France - Bordeaux

About the Region

Home to three of the most famous wines in France, châteaux Lafite-Rothschild, Mouton-Rothschild, and Latour, Pauillac, on the Gironde Estuary between St.-Estèphe and St. Julien, is often considered the most prestigious wine commune in the Médoc. At a slightly higher elevation than its neighbors, with well-drained, gravelly soil, it produces elegant wines, based primarily on cabernet sauvignon, known for their stalky, black currant aroma and their silky richness.
