Lots of chocolate, coffee and nut character on the nose and palate. Full body, chewy tannins and a fruity finish. Drink in 2016.

The wine was a little closed when I tasted it, but I want to remind readers that I forgot to include the 2011 La Fleur Morange in my review of that vintage in Issue #212 and it is a real winner. It is a stunning example... The wine was a little closed when I tasted it, but I want to remind readers that I forgot to include the 2011 La Fleur Morange in my review of that vintage in Issue #212 and it is a real winner. It is a stunning example of the vintage and quite drinkable and showy at present. The 2011 is the same blend as the 2013. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

This 1.51 hectare vineyard to the east of the town of St. Emilion boasts an incredible average vine age of 100 years planted in sandy clay limestone and iron soils. Grapes are harvested and de-stemmed by hand and the wine is aged in 100% new oak. Exuberantly pretty nose with pure ripe raspberry notes. Rich on the palate with lovely long length and plenty of acid to carry the concentration of the wild red fruit. A benchmark example of the Right Bank in 2011 that feels fresh and really showcases the vintage. Showy when young and will be exciting to taste in 5-7 years and over the following 15-20 years.
