James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, April 2012
A gorgeous wine with blueberry and cassis. Full-bodied with chewy yet polished tannins. Beautiful. This is really impressive. Almost as good as 2009.

This 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon blend from the limestone soils of Castillon is owned by Gerard and Chantal Perse, who also own such properties as Pavie, Pavie-Decesse, Monbousquet and Bellevue-Mondotte. 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

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.
