@Ron R I think Saint-Julien is such an underrated and overlooked appellation in Bordeaux. Because they don't have a First Growth I think is a big reasonnthey are overlooked, but it still has a lot to offer.

I agree, @Daniel P. Drake. And I hope people continue to overlook them. They are typically soft and graceful.

@Daniel P. Drake @Ron R In most vintages Leoville las Cases would be First Growth quality or at least knocking on the door.

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1988

Dark ruby, almost opaque. Doesn't look that old in the glass. Herbal nose with dark fruit, white pepper, gravel, some dry earthy dust. Shorter finish than what the nose offers. Good effort for the vintage. I guessed 82 Ducru. — a month ago

Le Haut Medoc de Branaire-Ducru

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Once part of the Beychevelle estate, this is the 2nd wine of Chateau Branaire Ducru. The grape varieties are typical Bordeaux, with Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. A medium bodied wine, with plum, blackberry and cassis. The fruit is very present, with soft tannines. After 10 years in the bottle still young, but soft, and years ahead of it still. Surprisingly good quality for about 17-18 Eur. Formidable! — a year ago

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

La Croix Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

A blend of 58% Merlot, 39% Cab Sauv & 3% Petit Verdot, deep Ruby with aromas of fresh red fruit with woodsy spice. On the palate flavors of red plum and cherry with some cacao and licorice notes. This wine shows oak and mineral tones with fine tight tannins and good balance. Long finish with fruit and spice ending. Needs a few years of bottle age. Reasonably price, good value. — 4 months ago
