'Bright full ruby. Captivating aromas of redcurrant, raspberry, coffee and minerals. Juicy, supple and concentrated, with very good flesh for the vintage buffered by harmonious acidity. Finishes with a firm acid/tannin spine and lingering red berry, mineral and floral nuances. An outstanding showing for Bernadotte; the higher clay content of its soils and a generally later-ripening site allowed the grapes to reach maturity levels that were uncommon even in more famous estates. This tasting confirms my original Primeurs impression that the 2011 Bernadotte is one of the vintage's great buys.'
