I bought two bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/42867. Saint-Julien is a Bordeaux AOC created in 1936 for wines from in and around the Saint-Julien-Beychevelle commune on the Medoc peninsular.It is a small [900 hectares] but prestigious appellation with 11 Grand Cru Classe in the 1855 classification..Chateau du Glana was started when the well known Rhone Valley negociant ,the late Gabriel Meffre bought a 5 acre plot from Chateau St-Pierre in 1961.It has been extended since and his descendants still own and run it.In the 1990's the top cuvee was the Vielles Vignes.It consists of 67% cabernet sauvignon,27% merlot and 6% cabernet franc and is aged in oak barrels.I started my bottle last night with my supper of roast pork and I enjoyed it.There is a fairly intense blackberry,cherry or licorice fruit there and the tannins are fairly soft although it is still a well structured wine.I thought it very good and very drinkable and I would give it high marks
