A brilliant garagiste St.-Emilion, the 2011 Lucia reveals an opaque blue/purple color as well as a sweet, sumptuous perfume of spring flowers, graphite, blueberry and black raspberry liqueur, medium to full-bodied flavors, no hard edges and a round, lush, textured finish. An outstanding effort that transcends the vintage, it should drink well for 10-12+ years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

This 7.5-acre vineyard-s yields were a small 28 hectoliters per hectare in 2011. Always a full-throttle St.-Emilion (even in a more restrained traditional vintage such as 2011) it achieved 13.5% natural alcohol in 2011... This 7.5-acre vineyard-s yields were a small 28 hectoliters per hectare in 2011. Always a full-throttle St.-Emilion (even in a more restrained traditional vintage such as 2011) it achieved 13.5% natural alcohol in 2011 and offers a boatload of ripe blackberry and blueberry fruit intermixed with notions of espresso roast chocolate and toasty oak. Full-bodied and surprisingly dense and rich with adequate acidity and sweet tannin it can be drunk over the next decade.

This shows a beautiful length with blueberry and mineral character. Full body with fine tannins and a delicious finish. Fresh and cool. Well-done for the vintage. Precise.

Tiny yields of only 25 hl/ha. Aged in 50% new oak and 50% once-used oak. Red cherry fruit herbal and spice aromas leap from the glass. The cherry carries through onto the palate in a kiss of sweet fruit. The wine is quite lifted and has a nice freshness and long length. Will drink beautifully young. Stephane Derenoncourt consults. Just under 2000 cases produced. Enjoy this beauty on release and over the following 15 years.
