Château Beau Site St. Estephe 2011
|Brand||Château Beau Site|
Wine SpectatorPlush for a St.-Estèphe, with an inviting core of steeped plum, pomegranate and cassis fruit, lined with lilac, bergamot and singed sandalwood notes. Offers a caressing finish, revealing a flicker of smoldering tobacco in the background. Much better than when tasted from barrel. Drink now through 2017. 10,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateFrom the Casteja family, the 2011 Beau-Site exhibits sweet cherry fruit along with loamy, earthy, red and darker fruits, medium body and a soft, round finish. This is a solidly made Cru Bourgeois to drink over the next 4-5 years.
