External Reviews for Château du Glana Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien
Intense aromas of licorice, blackberry and flowers lead to a full-bodied palate, with rich, juicy, velvety tannins. Long and delicious. Very generous. Best after 2015.
Space limitations did not allow complete tasting notes for this Cru Bourgeois, but 2005 is the finest vintage for these wines since 1982. The range of scores for these wines should give readers an idea of just how consistent this vintage is at this level. Given the style of the vintage, most of these wines should be accessible young yet evolve for a decade or more because of their concentration and tannic structure.
