JS 90 Pts - According to James Suckling - "This is very structured for the vintage, with blackberry and cocoa character. Full and chewy. Lots going on. Needs time. Better in 2016."
According to Robert Parker - "Long owned (over 150 years) by the family of the Baron Alfred de Luze, Paveil de Luze has been making good wines over the past decade. A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2011 offers a fragrant, seductive bouquet of plums, black cherries, spice and earth. Not a big wine, it possesses excellent balance, purity and equilibrium. This seductive, charming, lush, well-made sleeper of the vintage can be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years."
According to Wine Spectator - "The steeped plum and blackberry fruit is lined with pastis and roasted cedar notes. The well-focused, lightly grainy finish offers a warm paving stone hint. Drink now through 2016."
According to Wine Enthusiast - "Ripe, soft and fruity, this wine feels light. It’s enjoyable for its juicy berry flavors and open acidity." (Barrel Sample). 13.5% ABV.
