Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend from the Haut Medoc on the left bank in Bordeaux. La Batisse is just down the road from the famous Chateau Lafite Rothschild in Pauillac, sitting just outside of the appellation of Pauillac which is why it doesn't dictate such high prices but still has incredible quality. Traditionally made using French oak barrels this is a great example of good value Bordeaux.
A nose of cassis, plum and cedar wood followed by a mellow, ripe taste with amazing length and structure. 2009 Bordeaux is hard to beat and is still improving with age. This beauty is great and getting better.
