The vintage was then rescued by plenty of rain and cooler temperatures during July and August, with a late and slow ripening, which preserved flavor and freshness. The harvest then took place under a bright September sun. The Lacroix-Martillac 2011 in bottle has a lovely garnet colour with bright highlights. Deliciously aromatic on the nose revealing red and black fruit aromas(cherry, wild strawberries) and blackcurrant with some spicy notes. The palate is smooth and elegant, with red fruit notes and a touch of oak. On the finish there are some well-integrated but present tannins. You can save for 8 more years !
