Reviews/Information
"91 out of 100…This parcel, owned by Jonathan Maltus, was carved out of a premier grand cru classe, and the terroir consists of a thin layer of clay over compacted white limestone. The 2011 Le Carre (85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc) reveals good minerality interwoven with blueberry liqueur, white flower and chalk dust characteristics in its medium to full-bodied, pure, rich, concentrated personality. The tannins are supple, and like most successful 2011s, the wine is silky and forward. This impressively-endowed St.-Emilion should drink well for 10-12 years. Only 300 cases were produced." - Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate

"91 out of 100...Big and rich with dark chocolate, meat and dried fruits. Full body, velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Needs three to five years to come together. Try in 2017. - James Suckling

"92 out of 100...Solidly built, offering an impressive beam of raspberry and boysenberry fruit that pumps along, with a well-toasted frame and a graphite spine driving the finish. Just a touch stolid now, showing ample depth and persistence. Should stretch out well enough. This has come along very nicely since the barrel tasting. Best from 2016 through 2026. 300 cases made. - James Molesworth
