    October 1, 2019 - Yes, this is less plush than the 2012 alongside, but the 2011 Gruaud Larose shows a complex nose full of redcurrant, ash, oak, rose, pencil, and Provencal herb. Fine silhouette despite its wooly tannins. Quite classic, actually, and really terrific to see how far GL has come if this is what they are making in difficult vintages nowadays.

    April 17, 2016 - MW Institute 2011 Bordeaux Tasting: Vegetable, tobacco, herbs and undergrowth. The palate is just all over the place, the fruit is clearly under ripe and the oak tannins are much too assertive for the level of fruit. Very poor showing.

    January 20, 2016 - Institute of Masters of Wine - 2011 Bdx Tasting (Hyatt, San Francisco): Reduced, with burnt popcorn on the nose (oak? malolactic issues? yeast selection?).
    The palate is clearly extracted and has the silky integration of the other top St. Juliens.
