The more flamboyant California-styled 2011 Ermitage Le Meal Blanc is from a warmer site with a more southerly exposure. It offers up notes of wet rocks tangerines peaches and a striking scent reminiscent of the famous New Orleans dish bananas Foster. I know that sounds weird but that s what it smelled like when I first put my nose in the glass. This exuberant exotic ostentatious white Hermitage may be controversial but for me it was over-the-top perfection. -Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

More flint barbecue smoke crushed rock spring flower blueberry and black raspberry characteristics are present in the full-bodied 2011 St.-Joseph Les Granits. Uncommonly fleshy and seductive it should drink nicely for a decade or more. -Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Bright ruby. High-pitched red berry and floral aromas show very good intensity and a sexy spicecake nuance. Juicy penetrating and seamless offering vibrant raspberry and cherry flavors lifted by tangy acidity. Finishes lively and long with resonating spiciness. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Vivid ruby. An exotically nose evokes cherry compote blackberry and smoky Indian spices. Fleshy sweet and concentrated with a distinctly spicy quality to it dark berry flavors. Impressively lush and broad on the persistent finish with suave tannins adding shape. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2011 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux is one of the finest examples of this cuvee I have ever tasted. It hit 13% natural alcohol and represents only 28% of the harvest.

Combines both silky texture and good tension with a light chalky thread running through the middle of the almost plush plum and blackberry fruit. There s a bright cassis bush edge as well (telltale of the Petit Verdot component) and overall there s a very suave feel through the finish with a lingering jasmine edge. Tasted non-blind.-J.M.
