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 1930s 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 St Julien comes from a chateau
famed for the beauty of its pebbles as
well as the beauty of its wines. You know, the
one with the striking orange label on its bottles.
Come on, yes, thats the one! A mouthfillingly
tasty Cabernet/Merlot blend, its full
of dark bramble fruit, plums, cherries, tobacco
