Domaine Julien Meyer

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 austere...it 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!

Similar to bottle in France 3 1/2 years ago. VA is prominent, but some classical, lead pencil, mineral inflections and richer fruit than 2007 Saint Julien AOC. Has a Natural wine, vinegar inflection at finish after a lot of air. — 14 days ago

Morgon Gamay 2018

Stunning translucent violet color...pic here is not doing the visual justice. Nose is gorgeous—ripe strawberry and game aromas with some creme de cassis, rose petals and pink peppercorns. Palate is a bit of a letdown though still very good; the yeasty finish doesn’t let the full complexity shine through. For me, solid but not a rebuy; natural wine loons will love it — 7 days ago

@Adriana Fabbro It was very good I just thought the nose was better than the palate. Just a little too soft and natural wine-ish / yeasty for me. Maybe part of it is the hot vintage...aka every vintage from 2015 through forever

@Matt Perlman going to have to open my bottle now too. I am a big fan of sunier’s regnie ‘18. I’ve found ‘18s to be better than the previous 3 vintages for sure in terms of Beaujolais typicity.

Château Langoa Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

This Langoa is still in a slumber but beginning to wake up if forced....right bank 05s are a better pick for now but some left bank 05s are starting to open i am looking forward after all this time to see what they have in store — 2 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. — 12 hours ago

La Croix de Beaucaillou

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Château Léoville Poyferré

Saint Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Beautifully balanced St. Julien with a solid backbone laced with violets. Enough structure to hold for 10+ years. I decanted for an hour and it wasn’t long enough. — 22 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. — 6 days 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.

Domaine du Jaugaret

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2007

2nd time drinking this wine. 1 bottle drunk in France and this bottle drunk in the USA. There is so much hype behind this wine given miniscule production and traditional character. It’s a good wine and not flashy. However, it is not extremely complex and arguably lacking energy and refinement. Price tag is far too high in the USA. — 21 days ago
