Château Loudenne, Bordeaux 2011

Château Loudenne, Bordeaux 2011
17.75pts/20 (92/100pts)
Brace yourself. This is sweetness and light aromatically, with notes of candle wax, orange blossom and roasted lime. Like settling onto a freshly laundered pillow. But don’t be fooled – it’s followed up by a steely, intense structure that demands attention, and food. Brilliant with poached salmon but versatile enough to cope with turkey and all the trimmings.
