Our Saint-Julien 2014 from the appellation's most famous ‘super second growth’ is my favourite of our declassified wines at the moment - it is rich, lush and drinking beautifully now. It has considerable class as you would expect from a wine of this provenance. The château itself was owned by my French cousins and regrettably sold in the 1930’s for the price that a case of the château label sells for now! What a shame.
Tasting note: Rich, powerful and bursting with red and black fruits, this is a remarkably complex Claret for the price. The concentration of the palate is underpinned by a streak of minerality alongside notes of cedar and leather. A perfectly balanced masterpiece, which will pair superbly with roast beef. Real class here and for another 7-10 years.
“The 2014 Saint-Julien comes from one of Bordeaux’s so-called ‘Super Seconds’, whose 50 hectares of vineyards lie in the south-east of Saint-Julien where famously beautiful stone can be found underfoot (hint, hint). The wine, too, is deliciously eye-catching: soft, smooth and concentrated with a long, almost savoury, finish...” - Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
