Reviews for 2011 La Confession Bordeaux Blend

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
Dark but with solid drive all along the way as dark boysenberry linzer torte and blackberry fruit courses along held together by a prominent graphite spine. Long finish is stuffed with fruit. Impressive effort.-J.M

Another terrific effort from Jean-Philippe Janoueix, this beautiful 2011 boasts a dense purple color as well as a big, sweet bouquet of smoky barbecue, red and black fruits, and subtle background oak. Rich, full-bodied and textured, there is not a hard edge to be found in this plush, well-endowed St.-Emilion. Enjoy it over the next decade. - Robert Parker

This is well done with blueberry and flowers and spices. Full and linear and well-compacted for the vintage. It has a long finish.

From a 7.5-hectare estate average vine age is 42 years planted in clay-sand and clay-limestone soils. 59% of the harvest made it into the grand vin. Aged in 80% new oak. Deep red color with violet hue. The perfume is magic with grilled meat and rich fruit mingling with mocha truffle and raspberry kirsch aromas. The palate is concentrated with good depth and fruit concentration. Crushed mineral and an interesting note of hazelnut drive through to the long and pleasurable finish. Drink 2016-2034.
