Château Batailley Pauillac, Bordeaux, France 2015
Regular price £91.50
The name of the estate comes from the word “bataille”, meaning battle, in memory of a skirmish that took place in the vines in 1453 during the Hundred Years’ War. During this battle, the French troops retook possession of Château Latour which was occupied by the English, and this marked the end of English rule over the Medoc region. The estate as we know it today was created from the 16th to the 18th centuries on this land full of history. The château grounds were designed in the 19th century by Barillet-Deschamps, a famous landscape artist during the reign of Napoléon III.
