This lighter-bodied St.-Emilion exhibits an attractive dark plum/ruby color, no herbaceousness and an interesting bouquet of forest floor, black cherries and spice. A finesse-styled 2011 with good purity and no defects except the vintage’s lack of flesh, concentration and depth. Nevertheless, this is a good effort that should drink well in 2-3 years and last for 10-12. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

An equal blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon picked from 6th September until the 27th September. It offers the estate’s typical Left Bank, leafy bouquet with touches of pencil lead inflecting the broody dark fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, rigid tannins on the entry. It is a little disjointed but the Cabernet appears to be ripe although the finish is a little austere and needs to develop more expressive Merlot. Maybe it will improve with bottle age? Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

A like the quality of the tannins in this with plenty of subtle berry and chocolate character. Full body, with a lovely acidity. Wonderful length to it. This is really pretty. jamessuckling.com

Black cherry crimson. Floral dark fruit on the nose and palate. Warm bricks too. A little medicinal. Pretty chewy but not tough like so many. Much more complete and well balanced. Freshness well integrated too. Well done! Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

Subtle and understated. Remains within the bounds of the vintage. Medium-bodied and fresh. Elegant but will be too lean for some. Drink 2018-2028. Decanter.com

With equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, the wine reached 13% alcohol. Aged in 100% new oak, forest floor, stone, red berry and leafy aromas open to a medium-bodied, tannic, red berry-dominated St. Emilion. There is some dryness in the kirsch finish. theWineCellarInsider.com

From a blend of one third each of the two Cabernets and Merlot and at a very respectable 13.5% alcohol 2011 Figeac is a lovely wine. Sweet blue fruit on the nose: cassis, blackberry. it is firmly structured, sappy and fresh and with a lovely inner perfume. Abundant fine tannin. Juicy and fresh. Really excellent.
