Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) The colour is deep, opaque, beautifully clear. The first impression on the eye is one of density. In the palate, the texture is velvety and suave. There is good tension and freshness in the remarkably long finish. The oak is extremely well integrated, giving way to black fruit and violet notes. This vintage is characterized by its round, unctuous mid-palate, finishing on that little touch of wicked tastiness particularly appreciated at La Pointe.

    (2011 Vintage) Elegant, Truffle, Chocolate, Medium-bodiedJames Suckling - Pomerol, Bordeaux, France - "Lots of mineral, flower and blueberry character in this. Full body, with silky tannins and a juicy, lemon rind finish. Stylish for the vintage." [BARREL SCORE 90-91]
