Chateau Fleur la Mothe Medoc 2011 / 750 ml.

Item#: 70429

RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Mar 2014
Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London. The first word that comes into my head tasting this wine is… “class.” It has a beautifully defined, fresh and vibrant bouquet with pure dark cherry and wild strawberry scents that are seamlessly integrated with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, plenty of fleshy ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit and a velvety finish. Superb! Tasted September 2013.
SP8787 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2014
Engaging, with a juicy, pebbly feel along the edges and a friendly core of steeped plum, anise and blackberry fruit. A light brambly shading shows on the finish. Drink now through 2015. 10,000 cases made.
RP8686 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Apr 2014
Despite its garish orange label, this is a very good wine. Fruity, medium-bodied and purely made, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, fleshy fruit and soft tannins. It is ideal for drinking over the next 2–3 years.
WE8585 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2014
Smoky wood aromas are confirmed on the palate by a tough, wood-laden character. It’s all spice and toast, leaving little room at this stage for fruit. That should come because the wine has weight and suggestions of rich berry fruits in the background.

Where It's From

Region / Bordeaux

View more wines from Bordeaux

Bordeaux is known the world over for its exceptional wines, particularly red blends made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, among others. These Cabernets aren't typically the full-bodied Cabs you get from California, but rather medium-bodied wines that emanate elegance and sophistication.

You'll also find some refreshing Bordeaux whites and, of course, Bordeaux's famous dessert wine, Sauternes.

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

RP94+94+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Apr 2014
The saturated ruby/purple-hued 2011 Haut-Bailly exhibits a glorious, subtle, noble set of aromatics consisting of red and black currants, sweet cherries, graphite, truffles and a faint hint of wood spice. The wine hits the palate with the profound elegance and purity that have become so much a characteristic under Wilmers and Sanders. Still youthful, with good acidity and freshness, this brilliant, medium-bodied 2011 needs another 4–5 years of bottle age, and should evolve effortlessly for 20–25 years.
WE92+92–94 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/11/2012
Packed with dense tannins and firm fruit, this is a big, powerful wine. It is initially austere, but with time it becomes more rounded, with layers of wood tannins and rich fruit.
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 31, 2014
Shows a grippy feel, with lots of briar, pastis and plum sauce notes rolled together and driving through the sappy finish. Well-embedded acidity pushes everything along, while a pure echo of fruit hangs through the finish. Should blossom with cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2028.
