Château-Haut-Beausejour St. Estephe 2011
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Estephe|
This is a modern, polished wine, solidly packed with dark tannins and dense fruits. A tough, tannic element shows through strongly, giving a counterpoint to the acidiy. Drink from 2017.
Offers a good mix of dark plum, raspberry coulis and red currant fruit flavors, with a high-pitched floral hint that weaves through the lively finish. A chalky echo lingers. Drink now through 2019. 10,000 cases made.
