2011 Chateau Brane Cantenac Margaux (Futures)
-Wine Spectator, 88 to 91 pts.
"Made in a sexy, perfumed style, this 2011 seduces the taster with its wonderful aromatics of blue, red and black fruits, flowers, damp earth and forest floor. With excellent to outstanding concentration, fresh acidity and velvety tannins, this plush Margaux is atypically opulent/flamboyant for the vintage."-Robert Parker
2011 Chateau Saint Pierre Saint Julien (Futures)
2011 Vieux Chateau Certan Pomerol (Futures)
-Wine Spectator, 93 to 96 pts.
"Made in a big, bold style with 13.6% natural alcohol, it reveals a stunning perfume of graphite, mulberries, black currants, kirsch, licorice and forest floor. This full-bodied, dense Pomerol transcends the overall vintage character. Thienpont compared the style of the 2011 with their 2000, but with more density to its core because of the extremely low yields. Only 60% of the crop made it into this cuvee. It will need 5-8 years of cellaring, and should still be intact and drinking beautifully at age 30."-Robert Parker
2011 Chateau Duhart Milon Pauillac (Futures)
-Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, 89 to 91 pts.
"Shows high-toned cherry, tobacco leaf, grilled herb and lightly mulled spice notes. Very formed already, with a lingering dusty finish as the herb note peeks out more and more with air. Tasted non-blind."
2011 Chateau Giscours Margaux (Futures)
-Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, 88 to 90 pts.
"This has nice ripeness, with cassis and blackberry paste flavors allied to sweet tobacco and roasted spice. Has a plump, weighty feel, but good focus, too."
2011 Chateau Larcis Ducasse Saint Emilion (Futures)
-Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, 89 to 93 pts.
"This is lovely, with floral notes at first, which are then followed by pure, precise blueberry, plum and blackberry fruit aromas and flavors. Features a silky texture, fine acidity and a buried mineral hint on the finish. Classy."
