Winemaker Notes

Intense, deep crimson color. Dense nose, aromas of red and black fruit, boxwood and spicy notes. Very dense on the palate with fine intensity. Very complex finish.
Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

Wine Enthusiast - 96pts
The wine shows the power typical of a Lafite but within the context of the fruity 2011 vintage. The immensely dense tannic structure gives the wine a solid feel that is lifted by so much ripe black currant and berry fruits. At the back, the wine has a more brooding, dark character that suggests great aging potential. Drink this wine from 2019.

Wine Spectator - 94pts
This delivers pronounced tobacco and bay leaf notes up front, with a core of steeped plum and currant fruit and a fleshy edge through the charcoal-lined finish. There's some serious buried minerality, which should emerge with cellaring.

James Suckling - 94pts
Love the nose on this, with sweet tobacco, delicate currant, cedar and blackberry. Full body with integrated tannins and a juicy, fruity, subtle finish. The texture to this wine is beautiful.
