What experts say  
  
86/100 "Owned by the well-known Cazes family of Lynch-Bages, this popular St.-Estpehe has turned out a dark ruby/plum-colored 2011 with sweet cassis and black cherry fruit. A slightly short finish is present, but the wine has a good front end-loaded combination of fruit, extract and succulence."
  
  90/100 "Focused and pure, with a tight beam of red currant, lilac, singed balsa wood and iron that stays tightly coiled through the finish. Not big, but defined and persistent."  
  15.5/20 "Its yummy nose delivers a magnificent smell with cooked black fruit and sweet spices. Supple tannins for a particularly busty palate."
