Description

There is enough reduction present to obscure the details yet the underlying fruit does appear to be quite ripe. This impression is further corroborated by the ripeness of the supporting phenolics as the tannins are firm but round. There is fine density and plenty of mouth coating dry extract that pushes the structure to the background on the delicious and very serious finish that is very Gevrey in basic character. This is a wine that almost always boxes above its weight and is well worth considering.

– Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Score: 89-91

 

Bright medium red. Cherry, raspberry, smoke, minerals and pungent spices on the expressive nose. Sexy, tangy, sharply delineated flavors of red fruits and spices complicated by a whiff of game. Less dense than the 2012 version but displays lovely cut and vivacity. Finishes brisk and persistent. Serafin describes his 2011s as elegant and less tannic than his 2012s, and made from bigger grapes. Crop levels were off only about 10% from average, making this vintage the closest to normal of the last four.
