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.

Shows some zip which lends a vibrant edge to the blueberry linzer torte and blackberry fruit with lots of spice bouncing through the finish. This still has some toast to soak up but there's lots to like.-J.M.

This is well done with dark ripe fruits with plums and blueberries. Full and velvety with hints of chocolate. Plenty of fruit. A tiny bit hollow.

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.
