(two-thirds vendange entier): Bright red. Captivating, nuanced nose offers strawberry, raspberry, smoke and iron. Tightly wound and savory but boasts lovely intensity and lift for 2011. Silky red fruit flavors are perked up by pepper and saline notes. Really excellent fruit intensity and finishing soil tones here, but this ripely tannic, subtly palate-staining wine really needs five years of patience. Excellent potential. Etienne de Montille believes that the 2011s are mostly still showing the effects of bottle shock.
