Clean as a whistle. Pushing far towards the "modern" side of #Bordeaux. Dark chocolaty fruit, but bright fresh acid keeps it's lively. Drinking so well now, why wait?

Decanted 90 minutes. Very dark opaque colour. Nose with dark fruits, some black currant early on but some spices as well and some oak. Tasted blind the nose seems more CNP then Right Bank. Palate is dense, powerful, nice acidity in the middle, ripe fruit, volume and depth along with a delicious finish with a slight dryness. Very good but there is a little bit of warmth to it caused by alcohol that makes the whole balance very slightly out of sink with the rest. 90-91

Carafé 90 minutes. Couleur foncée et opaque. Fruits noirs, cassis aussi, du bois un peu. Fait plus CNP que Rive Droite au nez. Bouche délicieuse, puissante, dense, du volume, belle acidité en millieu de bouche, finale est assez longue, un peu asséchante et une touche alccoleuse qui affecte un peu l’équilibre d’ensemble. Très bien malgré tout, mais pas certain que ca deviendra grand. 90-91

Double decanted and let rest for an hour(decent amount of sediment)...on the nose: stewed plums, wet leaves, Carmel. Taste: cherry, plum, spice, currents, smooth tannin...decent length finish....not a great year but enjoyed how this is drinking...drink up if you own

Probably the best 2011 @ £50 price point bordeaux I’ve found as you would think it’s a better vintage & it’s ageing nicely & 20yrs ahead of it 👍 91-92 going 94

🍇 84% Mer, 14% Cab F & 2% Cab S

🍷 Opaque black ruby

👃 Rich blackcurrant chocolate in crushed mineral rocks, dried herbs, blueberry, soft earth, truffle & light smoke

👄 Med++ bodied power blackcurrant w/ dried cocoa & red cherry that needs to soften w/ age

🎯 Med++ touch dry dark fruit & chocy-chocy-bang-bang w/ a touch green on the end

17.5/20 (93/100) Вино с ярким, насыщенным и молодым ароматом спелых ягод вишни, чёрной смородины, ежевики, ванили, молочного шоколада и лёгкой нотой сухой травы. Тельное с довольно высокой кислотностью. Во вкусе много спелой вишни и сливы. Продолжительное послевкусие. Отлично!
