2011 Chateau Barde Haut Saint Emilion
-Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, 90 to 92 pts.
"This has solid flesh, with plum and cherry compote notes framed by a lightly taut plum skin edge. There's good spice through the finish. Well-extracted but not overdone."
2011 Chateau Larcis Ducasse Saint Emilion
-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."
