The name of "Batailley" would come from the "Battle" which took place in 1453 between the French and the English on the lands of the future domain; with the reconquest of Château Latour by the French, this year saw the end of the Hundred Years War. Château Batailley is one of the oldest residences in the town of Pauillac.

Vines have been planted on this land rich in history since the 17th century. In the 18th century, three brothers and sisters of the Saint-Martin family, originally from Pauillac, acquired the estate. In 1791, the two sisters sold their shares to Guillaume Pécholier, a Bordeaux wine merchant.

In 1816, Daniel Guestier, from the trading company Barton & Guestier, bought the Château, modernized it, increased the surface area of ​​the vineyard and improved the quality of the wine. His son succeeded him in 1847.

It is the Guestier family who would have asked Jean-Pierre Barillet-Deschamps, landscaper to Napoleon III, to design the 6-hectare park. In 1866, the Parisian banker Constant Halphen acquired the property.
