This wine typically reveals a masculine, dense, rich, concentrated style, and while the 2011 vintage has tamed those characteristics somewhat, this is still a beefy, meaty effort. The color is nearly opaque, and the wine reveals excellent purity and depth as well as an attractive core of deep fruit. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. It is a sleeper of the vintage. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

The nose demonstrated fine delineation and focus with crisp blackberry and cassis fruit, the oak in synch with the fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth, silky entry and much more cohesion and harmony than I expected. This could be a little gem in 2011. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

A little diluted in the center palate but some juicy fruit and firm tannins. jamessuckling.com

On the taut side, with perky acidity and a strong chalky frame to the vivid cassis and blackberry notes. Rather tight now, but with solid concentration-if the acidity doesn't remain too angular. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Deep crimson. Attractive freshness and nothing exaggerated on the nose. Very clean and straightforward but very unsubtle. Good honest farm-made St-Émilion. With quite a lot of acidity. jancisrobinson.com

Lively, fresh and harmonius. A little leaner than recent vintages but an agreeable drinking wine of medium-bodied weight. Drink 2016-2025. Decanter.com
