Grand Puy Lacoste 91-92js 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"This has lots of mineral and lemon peel character with dried flowers and currants. Full and very silky with fresh acidity. Long and intense. Racy and lean at the finish...91-92" JS 04/12 "Nice, fresh, floral style, with violet and sandalwood notes up front followed by a core of plum, bergamot and cherry sauce flavors. Lightly dusty finish. Has some weight in reserve and so could flesh out more...88-91" WS 04/12 "Overall, this is an elegant effort from Xavier Borie. A dark ruby/purple hue and a classic nose of smoky black currants and flowers are followed by a medium-bodied wine with more finesse and elegance than the blockbuster style seen in great vintages. Penetrating acidity gives the 2011 Grand Puy Lacoste excellent vibrancy as well as definition. Enjoy it during its first 10-15 years of life...89-91" WA 04/12
