2011 Chateau Gruaud Larose Saint Julien
2011 Chateau Saint Pierre Saint Julien
Reviewed by: Robert Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate - 87+pts
"Offers a good, sappy core of dark plum, blackberry and fig, layered with brambly tannins and smoldering charcoal accents. Mouthwatering acidity lends the finish cut and length, while the dark fruit plays out through the finish. Best from 2017 through 2026."
2011 Chateau Gloria Saint Julien
"This estate continues to go from strength to strength. Another sleeper of the vintage, the 2011 is excellent, possibly outstanding. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by abundant aromas of cassis, forest floor, tobacco leaf and a vague hint of oak. Ripe for the vintage with excellent texture, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and a delicious, savory, broad appeal." -Robert Parker, Jr.
2011 Chateau Leoville Barton Saint Julien
Reviewed by: Wine Spectator-92pts
"An opaque purple color is followed by aromas of damp earth, underbrush, black currants, cedar and hints of vanillin and incense. Medium to full-bodied and moderately tannic with good acidity as well as excellent delineation and purity." -Robert Parker, Jr.
2011 Chateau Talbot Saint Julien
Reviewed by: Wine Spectator - 90pts
"Copious black currant, olive, unroasted coffee bean, forest floor and underbrush characteristics are present in this attractive, dark plum/ruby/purple-tinged offering. One of the lighter-styled 2011 St.-Juliens." -Robert Parker, Jr.
2011 Chateau Lagrange Saint Julien
Reviewed by: Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar - 88-91pts
"Extracted and oaky with dry, astringent tannins, the 2011 Lagrange is disjointed and not totally harmonious at present." -Robert Parker, Jr.
2011 Chateau Branaire Ducru Saint Julien
Reviewed by: Wine Spectator - 92pts
"A top-notch effort from this estate, the 2011 exhibits an exotic perfume of lead pencil shavings, white chocolate, raspberry jam and red as well as black currants. Loads of fruit, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and velvety tannin suggest this beauty will drink well for 15+ years. It is one of the stars of the appellation in this vintage. Bravo!" -Robert Parker, Jr.
