"2011 is a tricky vintage for Bordeaux. That having been said it is important not to completely write the year off without first considering that there are some really good reds to report on as well as some of the finest whites and Sauternes in many years.
There is variability throughout both left and right banks. In a vintage where the mantra should have been “less is more” it is interesting that some people got it absolutely right by letting nature do its thing and not interfering. Equally it is extraordinary how some of the Châteaux thought they would try and do some tweaks, resulting in many oak extracted monsters.
The vintage was always going to fall in the shadow of the two great years that preceded it; the weather conditions were far from ideal and the general market is challenging. However the best wines at every level are definitely worthy of consideration."
