  1. CHATEAU MARGAUX 2011 MARGAUX

    Item #: i_321118
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Advocate: 93
    ROBERT PARKER 93 POINTS: "The renowned Chateau Margaux's 2011 boasts a dark ruby/plum color as well as a fragrant perfume of spring flowers, sweet, supple, well-integrated tannins, medium body, and the elegance and nobility expected from a great first-growth. Although it is not as powerful or concentrated as the 2009 or 2010 (no 2011s are), it possesses finesse, elegance, purity and suppleness. The wine is surprisingly approachable already yet should keep for 15-20 years."

  2. MONTROSE 2011 ST ESTEPHE

    Item #: i_321119
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Spectator: 93
    Wine Enthusiast: 94
    WINE ENTHUSIAST 94 POINTS: "As so often with Montrose, this is a powerful, concentrated and very structured wine. Dense tannins are paired with rich black fruits, although at this stage the wine also has a sense of austerity. Power, severity and complexity all make for a wine for long aging. Wait until 2019."

    WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS: "Features some lovely plum, black currant and blackberry fruit, already melded into the core, while a pure, long and rather regal structure runs through the finish, letting extra charcoal and pebble notes play out. Offers precision, range and a beautiful mix of fruit and austerity."

  3. MOUTON ROTHSCHILD 2011 PAUILLAC

    Item #: i_321121
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Advocate: 92+
    ROBERT PARKER 92+ POINTS: "The dense ruby/purple-colored 2011 Mouton Rothschild (90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc) displays tell-tale notes of creme de cassis, vanillin and spicy oak, more tannin than many of the Pauillacs, and a solid, medium-bodied, concentrated, muscular Cabernet Sauvignon personality. Still tightly-knit and closed, but with lots of potential, it is a big, firmly structured Mouton that may turn out to be slightly austere. However, there are many reasons for optimism as well, so forget it for 7-8 years. It has 2-3 decades of aging potential. Only 54% of the production made the grade for Mouton Rothschild."

    "Mouton Rothschild harvested between September 12-26, producing a final blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. One of the vintage’s great wines, it is a candidate for wine of the vintage. According to administrator Philippe Dalhuin, only 54% of the production went into the grand vin."

  4. TALBOT 2011 ST JULIEN

    Item #: i_345814
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Enthusiast: 95
    WINE ENTHUSIAST 95 POINTS - "With attractive, juicy fruit, this wine has as much freshness as it does structure. The palate is warm and open with blackberry fruits that are rounded and soft. Spice and some tannins show through on the finish. Drink from 2017."

    JAMES SUCKLING 92 POINTS - "A juicy young 2011 with chocolate, berry and toasted-oak character. Full and rich. Needs time to soften. This is better than the 2010 Talbot."

    WINE SPECTATOR 90 POINTS - "This pulls no punches in terms of style, presenting fleshy ganache and tar notes out front, with an ample core of crushed plum and macerated black currant fruit and a long, muscular, tarry finish. A strong showing."

    WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "Talbot’s dense ruby/purple color is followed by an attractive, spicy, earthy St.-Julien displaying hints of tapenade, black cherries and soil undertones in a forward, lush, round, seductive style. This excellent, medium-bodied 2011 should provide delicious drinking for 10-15 years. Talbot appears to have succeeded admirably in this vintage."
