The 2011 Bordeaux vintage had the misfortune of following the legendary duo of 2009 and 2010. It is a precocious vintage that is now in its maturity window and serves as a gap measure for those who want something good to drink in the intervening years while 2009 and 2010 sit in the cellar. The right bank (Merlot based) wines are particularly successful.

With Valentine’s upcoming fast, and eating out prohibitive why not do up a nice meal at home (roast lamb comes to mind immediately) paired with an older Bordeaux that is drinking well!

First, those pictured above from left to right (these we have good stock on):

2011 Château Providence (Bordeaux – Pomerol, France) – $189.99

2011 Le Carre (Bordeaux – St. Emilion, France) – $164.99

2011 Château La Fleur-Petrus (Bordeaux – Pomerol, France) – $259.99

2011 Château Trotanoy (Bordeaux – Pomerol, France) – $269.99

Here is a couple more 2011’s to consider:

2011 Le Dome (Bordeaux – St. Emilion, France) – $249.99

2011 Château Teyssier Vieux Chateau Mazerat (Bordeaux – St. Emilion, France) – $139.99

Happy Valentines everyone!
