AOC Bordeaux 2011

Château Lamothe-Vincent, AOC Bordeaux 2011

16.5 (88) Recommended
80% Merlot, 20% cabernet sauvignon. This is a charming wine, with really good fruiting, plump for the vintage, plenty of pleasure.

Château Bois Pertuis, AOC Bordeaux 2011

16.5 (88) Recommended
Blend of 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from winemaker Vincent Cacheau. Oak aged, rich summery red fruits, no harsh edges. Impressive.

Extrait de Rambaud, AOC Bordeaux 2011

15.5 (85) Recommended
Quite fruity, soft, extraction clearly undertaken very gently, as the resulting wine is not too tannic. Quality winemaker Daniel Mouty has worked well with the vintage here, producing an enjoyable 100% Merlot wine.

Château Lesparre, AOC Bordeaux 2011
15.25 (84) Recommended
Organic wine. Medium-weight in colour and texture, from a blend of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc. Michel Gonet has produced here a gentle wine that works with the 2011 vintage – a good pizza or pasta wine. 13% alcohol.

7 hectares, Château de Lisennes, AOC Bordeaux 2011
15.25 (84) Recommended
Organic slightly rustic, but soft, fruity, pleasant wine from owner Jean Pierre Souble. Blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc.

Château Jean de Bel Air, AOC Bordeaux 2011
14.75 (82) Fair
Blend of 60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. Starts slowly on the attack, but the length is good, and the tannins well integrated.
