A wonderfully aromatic wine with an enveloping bouquet of rose petals, sweet cherries and raspberries with hints of exotic dried fruits and incense. On the palate, deep layers of perfumed red berry fruits and delicate spices swirl around the mouth leading to an incredibly long and refreshing finish. Extremely elegant and beautifully refined, this extraordinary wine will mature for several decades developing magnificent complexity. 2011 was a warm but regular vintage without extremes.
THE WINE ADVOCATE 95 points - Drink Date: 2019 - 2040 - "Full and generous wine that wraps thickly over the senses. The bouquet shows enormous depth and power with a generous presentation of dark fruit, cassis, balsam herb, cola, licorice, tar and lingering smoke. There is an evident sense of fruit ripeness here that helps to build momentum and staying power. Clay soils in the vineyard site have also helped to contribute to the heft and full-bodied nature of this special wine. The finish is characterized by mild acidity and lingering flavors of ripe fruit. The opulent fruit of the wine recalls the 2007 and 2004 vintages."
