for this region?


Saint-Julien is a commune in the Medoc region of Bordeaux. It is located just south of Pauillac. The wines are made mostly from Cabernet Sauvignon. Because it has no First Growths, it is often underrated and a source of value. It is, however, the home of several prestigious estates, such as Leoville-Las-Cases.

  • A ridiculous number of trigger pullworthies in this new offering, many in their absolute drinking prime. Wish the shop was just down the street from me, rather than the ones that are. But then I'd have to live in NYC.  ;-(I love it when a guy drops 100 cases on a shop, just to 'make some space" in his cellar. Wonder what's going to be filling th... Read More

  • Clos du Marquis St. Julien 2007


    Blackberry, cassis, fresh cigar tobacco and cedar plank greet the nose and the wine has a good, deep colour for the vintage; there is a smooth, slightly acidic red fruit entry with a mild root and stem element on a surprising warm finish. Good effort in a trying year with some further cellaring potential (3-4 years). 89 points. Read More

  • Chateau Talbot St. Julien 2008


    Shoe polish and leather dominate the tight and inexpressive nose. While this is a bit easy going, smooth, and moderately rich in the mouth it lacks some detail early on the palate, though it does gain a little olive accent to the berry fruit on the backend, it remains mostly details and a bit anonymous with a bit of a coffee cream finish. textu...

  • Lagrange 2012


    Focused with stemmy herb and truffle nuance on the nose, with a bit of shoe polish yielding to fancy toasty oak and vanilla top notes. A bit dry in the mouth with wood tannin, though there is plump black fruit that shows some candied accents mostly covering the tannin on the palate. Fairly seamless but lacking some detail, there's a core of hard... Read More

  • Leoville Poyferre 2012


    Nutty oak is a bit heavy on the nose, though there is plenty of jammy fruit to support it it remains vanilla tinged. A bit austere on entry, focused, rather powerful and frankly tannic with dry tannins spreading across the palate. You can sense the stuffing here and there's a hint of bitterness on the palate that offers a nice counterpoint to th... Read More

  • Branaire-Ducru 2012


    Deep and a bit oily and inky on the nose with aromas of black fruit and dusty gravel This has that sweet savory aspect to it with a base of nutty oak,, a really powerful and complex nose. Powerful on entry as well but but tight and a bit austere and blocky in the mouth. Tight and promising today but not showing terribly much in the mouth today, ... Read More

  • Château Saint-Pierre 2012


    Olive, herbal, and graphite come together on this classic Bordeaux nose aging gentle hints of smoke and oak with air. A decidedly happy wine, smooth but tight, with nice mineral tinged tannins, plenty of ripe fruit, and classically proportioned with small tannins that are a little austere and steamy. There's a hint of cocoa and almost jammy red... Read More

  • Langoa-Barton 2012


    Fine focus on the nose with a hint of nutty oak over mineral, smoke, and faint fruit aromas all come together with fine focus. Light on the palate, yet superbly transparent with very subtle hints of leather, herb, and gravel accenting fresh, crushed black currant fruit that doesn't dominate the palate. This is all nuance and finesse today with f... Read More

  • Langoa Barton 2013


    Tight on the nose with mineral, shoe polish, leather and nutty wood aromas that are fresh and precise. This is tight and yet surprisingly open, though thus is more about structure than fruit today. It shows fine freshness and good clarity gaining red currant notes on the palate in a rather austere way, turning to black currant on the back end, a... Read More

  • Beychevelle 2012


    Elegant, hightoned and floral on the nose with herbal complexity already accenting the red fruit, this has a very fine and balanced nose. Rigid, slightly austere and upright in the mouth, there is elegance and subtlety on display here with fresh, bright fruit, transparent and bright. I love the intensity of the fruit which comes with only modest... Read More
