Learn About Chateau Batailley Map It
Chateau Batailley, a 5th Cru of the classification of 1855, is Borie-Manoux's and the Casteja-family's flagship. The name is derived from the battle ("bataille") that took place where the chateau and vineyard are today during the 100-years war around 1453. In this battle, the French re-conquered the neighbouring Chateau Latour from the English, a crucial point for ending the 300 year long reign of the English in Aquitaine. In the 16th century, the first vines were planted on these historical grounds.
