Domaine Julien Meyer

Château Gruaud Larose

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Scarlet tawny and opaque. Great, complex nose offering notes of black cherries, herbal tobacco leaf and freshly cut Cuban cigar, cedar wood and a hint of menthol. Nicely balanced in the mouth. Gave it 5 hours of air in a decanter and patience was rewarded with a great aged Bordeaux experience. Great stuff. Paired with a 92 Dominus it was interesting to find how much these wines resemble each other. — 3 days ago

Enjoyable and drinking well, if a little on the oaky side. Plum, black cherry, graphite in the palate with an herbal finish that folds in a dash of barrel char. A firm, taut style typical of the vintage. Good stuff. — 9 days ago

Château Lagrange

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Drank beautifully after a short decant. Rich dark plum and ripe blackberries, this was a warm vintage and that certainly shows but the grainy tannins held the backbone and keep this from being unremarkable. — 3 days ago

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

#6 on WS top 100 wines of 2007.

2 hour decant (decent chunky sediment). A dazzling dark ruby red color. On the nose: perfumed nose, black fruit, menthol, earthy, green veggie, graphite. Taste: a smooth and silky wine with dark fruit, spice, earthy, and a cherry pencil lead medium plus slightly tannic finish. Still just a little young and slightly will be better with a few more years on it. But with the decant, it will be enjoyed over the next couple hours this Saturday night! Cheers!

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Mature wine that is in great shape. All the typical aromas of Cabernet are there, and so are the tanins and the acidity. Well balanced, elegant, ready to drink. Textbook Saint-Julien on a vintage from my experience better than the more famous 1990. — a day ago

Château Saint-Pierre

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Very serious. Big, beef-blood character. Way more extracted style than I recall from the ‘99. Will be interesting to revisit in a decade. Big upside development potential. — 21 hours ago

Château Beychevelle

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1986

Fun bottle. Shed the fruit, turn up the scent and taste of a nice cigar, cedar wood, coffee, and scorched earth. Grippy finish. Still fairly tannic. — a day ago

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2002

Fantastic wine and just my style!

1hr+ decant, which was perfect. Dark red color with aging on the edges. Classic Bordeaux nose of cherries, earth, cigar box, and cedar. Dark cherries, smoke, and charred meat on the palate. Medium depth with some grittiness to it, and above average tannins. Medium plus finish. Loved it!

Would drink now as it’s slowly starting its decline.
