One of the few blockbuster wines in this vintage, Gracia’s 2011 exhibits an opaque blue/purple color along with gorgeous aromas of graphite, chalk, black currants, blueberries, camphor and a hint of truffles. Full-bodied and rich, with good acidity, this luscious St.-Emilion should drink well in 2-3 years and last for 15. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

This pumps out exotic ganache, fig sauce and blackberry coulis notes, with a hefty frame of roasted vanilla and espresso hints. This ambitious version has a lot going on, but manages to pull it off. Best from 2015 through... This pumps out exotic ganache, fig sauce and blackberry coulis notes, with a hefty frame of roasted vanilla and espresso hints.

From a tiny 1.9-hectare micro-parcel of clay-limestone soil average vine age is 39 years. Aged in 50% new oak. The yields in 2011 were only 24 hl/ha and just under 500 cases produced. Purple nearly opaque core. Aromas of smoked meats flowers plum hoisin sauce and rich soil mingle with aromas of toasted marshmallow and earthy beet. The palate is full-bodied and powerful with high-toned acidity and supportive tannins. Rich flavors of truffle and sweet cherry linger on the mid-palate through to the long finish. This will require 3-5 years in bottle and should be enjoyed for the following two decades. Tasted three times. Drink 2016-2036.
