2011 is a superb vintage, thanks to improving weather after the atypical spring and meticulous care in the vineyard during sorting, and in the cellar. It’s a worthy successor to 2009 and 2010 and very much in the same line, exhibiting elegance, grace and balance with mature fruit, fine tannins, and a beautiful structure. The purity is remarkable, with an exhilarating freshness and the silky texture which is hallmark of Margaux.
Here, the high aromatics punch right out of the glass. It's great quality, with juiciness but also a sense of restraint to the undoubtedly exuberant black fruits. A sense of freshness and fun runs through it, and it will be great with food because of the pretty high acidity. A liquorice edge and a saline kick to the finish make it extremely mouthwatering. There's plenty to grab hold of here, and the vintage allows for an Issan that's approachable earlier than usual, and wine lovers should make the most of it.
