Chateau du Glana was constructed in 1870 for the original owner,a Mr Cayx,who bought a 5 hectare vineyard from neighbouring Chateau Saint Prierre.After several other owners it was bought by the well known Rhone valley negociant Gabriel Meffre in 1961.He increased the vineyard to 43 hectares by buying plots from 3rd growth Chateau Lagrange.The estate is now run by his descendants and has a high reputation
Finding a St. Julien of this quality is difficult at this price - or any price. The inviting plum and blackberry scent has a purity that is not disappointed on the palate - for, with steel and plum - and a little brambleberry - the taste is light and elegant. Underrated. 90 points.
External Reviews for Cha du Glana St Julien
Loads of black currant and blueberry on the nose. Full-bodied, with caressing tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Lots going on here. Yet subtle. Best in a long time. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Chateau du Glana 750ml
