K&L Notes

Additional notes from Burghound: "Erwan Faiveley and Bernard Hervet describe 2011 as a 'vintage of pleasure but one that isn't at the same time banal. We're not arguing that it's a great vintage but it's certainly excellent as there is warmth to the wines in the sense that they are very satisfying to drink as they are generous and suave yet there is finesse and elegance as well. The skins were thick the way they are in the great vintages during the growing season yet 55 ml of rain fell just before the harvest and diluted the fruit just enough that it prevented what could have been something genuinely special. Still, there is the color and aromatic complexity if not quite the mid-palate concentration of a great vintage. Another interesting aspect is that it's like having a warm and cool vintage rolled into one as you have the ripe phenolics of a warm vintage coupled with the acidity and low alcohols of a cool one. Consider that we had no reds that came in above 13% in terms of potential alcohols yet the aromas and structural elements are entirely ripe. In terms of comparable vintages, 2007 and 1979 come to mind.'"(01/2013)
