St. Julien, Médoc

Château Léoville Poyferré

Saint Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Survived my first full week of WFH. My two “office assistants” helping show this bottle. Really enjoying this beautiful full bodied Bordeaux. Blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Dark inky color. Amazing nose. This is a gorgeous rich wine. It presents with a fresh silky mouthfeel. Black berries, licorice and black currant. One word - elegant! Perfect for a social distancing night. — 9 days ago

@Eric Bass she’s a poodle that looks like a doodle. She confuses everyone — possibly even herself 🙂. But thank you!

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

Quite primary fruit still. Plummy dark stuff with a hint of tobacco and a sour cherry note. Relatively simple but nice and savory. Good. — 5 days ago

Château Beychevelle

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Delectable Wine

The 2017 Beychevelle is a luscious, extroverted beauty. An exotic mélange of super-ripe dark cherry, red plum, pomegranate, espresso, licorice and blood orange build as this potent, unctuous Saint-Julien opens up in the glass. The tannins need time to soften but should not be much of an issue in another few years' time. I very much like the push and pull of ripeness and energy in the 2017. In a word: memorable. Tasted two times. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2020)

Château Gruaud Larose

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

One of my favorite vintages of GL that I have had many times over the last few years. This has been fully mature & still holding showing red & black fruits, cedar, leather, earth, tar, forest floor, licorice & tobacco. One of the reasons why I love older Bordeaux! — 9 days ago

Château Lagrange

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

this Saint Julien was tight at open. Decanted and then sang w cherries, a touch of vegetal, followed by a slight note of cranberry, then maybe some baking spice and a dash of white pepper at finish. After an hour the cherries were still dominant upfront and the wine had a velvety mouthfeel with a touch of cocoa powder. Lesser white pepper notes to finish. — 12 days ago

Château Talbot

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

1 hour decant, probably needed more. More Napa than St. Julien. Dark red with brownish tones. Restrained nose of dark cherries. Black licorice on the palate and very unique wine. Short finish. Not my style of wine, but not bad. — 8 days ago

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Croix de Beaucaillou Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Excellent. Dark garnet robe, nice legs, tannins evident but resolved. Slow ox’d and drank with pork loin, which proved to be a smashing idea. Delicious. — 18 days ago

Château Branaire (Duluc-Ducru)

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Classic left bank - still good tannin - well rounded with a medium - long finish. A hint of leather and blackberry on the nose. Drinking well now -likely in the sweet spot now with a year or two to run. — 22 days ago
