A flowery nose of ripe plums, blueberries, truffles and roasted meats jumps from the glass of this inky/purple-colored 2011. Made from a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, it reveals super-richness, velvety tannin, a skyscraper-like mid-palate, and not a hard edge to be found. It is another remarkable effort in this challenging vintage. Its 14.5% natural alcohol is incredible given the growing conditions. This gorgeous boutique St.-Emilion, one of the stars of the vintage, will evolve effortlessly for 15-20 years.  By the way, I recently had the 2000 Magrez-Fombrauge (which I believe is the first vintage), and at age 14 it was outstanding.

70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc created a wine with stone, licorice, blackberry, chocolate covered cherry and coffee notes. Flashy and fleshy, the wine finishes with a round, tannic, fresh, plum, coffee and cocoa filled finish. 91-94 Pts

I like the blueberry and blackberry character with minerals and hints of oak. Full and velvety. Well made and very polished for the vintage.

Neal Martin - Wine Advocate

The nose is rather taciturn with subdued dark cherry and blueberry fruit. The palate is actually well balanced with pure cassis and blackberry fruit, a fine net of tannins with fine precision and length. Perhaps the growing season has contained this habitually ostentatious wine. Not bad. Tasted April 2012
