Usually the reference point for Castillon, the 2011 Clos Lunelles boasts an inky/purple color along with a liquid chalk-like character that offers tremendous minerality, a boatload of tannin, and super richness as well as extract. This full-bodied, backward, formidably endowed red clearly over-performs. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following decade. Amazingly long, rich and impressive, it is a major sleeper of the vintage. 91+ - Robert Parker collapse

I am impressed with the balance and beauty of this wine. Full body with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Plenty of mineral and berry character. Better in 2016.

Wine Spectator, April 2012
This has an exotic dark sappy feel to its plum sauce melted licorice snap and blueberry paste notes. Ample spice through the well-toasted finish. Ambitious style that still needs to knit a little bit.-J.M.
