Clos de Loratoire 2011

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

This is plenty ripe, but not at all overextracted, with mouthwatering plum, raspberry and bitter cherry notes coursing along, inlaid with spice, black tea and anise. Nice chalky grip holds sway on the finish.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Clos de lOratoire 1500ml
