Critical Acclaim

"The 2011 Haut-Carles may turn out to be the wine of the vintage for Fronsac. It’s closest competition is nearby La Vieille Cure and Fontenil as well as a few others. Harvested during the third week of October (one of the latest in all of Bordeaux), this blend of 80-90% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc is sensational. The 35-acre vineyard has produced an inky/purple-colored 2011 displaying a gorgeous bouquet of blueberry and blackberry liqueur intermixed with graphite, acacia flowers and subtle new oak. Full-bodied with stunning concentration as well as richness, this major sleeper of the vintage has the potential to last 15-20 years. It is clearly a big time overachiever in this vintage.
Range: 91-93 Points"
