"It was pretty dramatic to see the difference that a few months of distance out from the completion of malolactic fermentation could make, as the Narbantons, having finished up in September, was absolutely singing in November. Being completely on form, it is quite easy to see the superb elegance inherent in the 2011s chez Camus, as this wine soars from the glass in a mix of black cherries, red currants, coffee, gamebirds, a superb base of soil, fresh herbs and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with lovely acids, ripe tannins, lovely mid-palate depth and excellent focus and grip on the well-balanced and very suave finish. Narbantons is usually a bit sauvage out of the blocks, but this emphatically not the case with this superb 2011 from the Camus family. 2018-2050."

"A slightly riper nose that is a bit more complex as well though not more elegant displays a beguiling mix of plum, violets, dark berries and warm earth nuances. The velvety, round and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors possess plenty of structure buffering dry extract that also coats the palate on the harmonious, dusty and admirably long finish. This too is quite lovely and worth your consideration."
