Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Croix de Beaucaillou Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Blend of 85% Cab Sauv and 15% Merlot, with an impressive label designed by Mick Jagger’s daughter, Jade. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruit, spice and herb notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry, plum and tart black cherry with currant and black pepper. Fine tannins, well balanced ending with smoky spice. Tasting well now, crack it out of cellar. — a day ago

Château Lagrange

Les Fiefs de Lagrange St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2002

Smoke, roasted red bell pepper, sun dried tomato, tea leaves, leather. Tannin perfectly integrated. This vintage was certainly not great, but this is clearly one of the best Fiefs I ever had. Go for second wines in lesser years . — 13 days ago

Château Lalande-Borie

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

I regret not aging this longer! But my friends and I loved it. Blackberries, dried herbs, plums. Great structure. Just a delicious wine. I think it’s a good value for $45ish. — a month ago

Château Branaire (Duluc-Ducru)

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

What a wine, one to have in your cellar for sure. Tonight I have opened the 2018 Château Branaire-Ducru Saint-Julien. A blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc.

On the nose is dark cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, chocolate, herbal notes, tobacco, violats, vanilla and dark earth.

On the palate is dark cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, herbaceousness, cedar, graphite, sweet tobacco and earth.

This beautiful wine is full bodied with a smooth silky mouthfeel, medium+ acidity and medium+ grippy mouthcoating tannin that fills your mouth with a long black & blue fruit earthy finish. This wine has a long life and can sit in your cellar for 20+ years. Keep enjoying the weekend and stay healthy and safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1975

Last of the ‘75s. Mid-shoulder. Mature but not over the hill. Well, maybe starting a gentle decline. Another triumph for the Durand corkscrew. — 2 days ago
