Estate: Château Saint Julian is a 30 hectare estate purchased in 2004 by a former Parisian businessman who always dreamed of producing Bordeaux. He revived the estate and his first vintage, the 2005, has been called “tremendous”. As renowned importer Skurnik Wines states on their website: “The story behind the estate is not necessarily romantic, but it does convey a certain truth of the Bordeaux region.”
Winemaking: Grapes are sourced from vines with an average age of 30 years, grown in clay-limestone soil. Aged for 12 months in oak, 30% new oak.
Tasting Notes: Dark garnet in colour with aromas of berries, peppery spice and oak. Flavours mirror the aromas with dark berry preserves over a peppery oak core. Silky tannins compliment the dry finish. Straightforward, this is a solid value Bordeaux to pair with everyday dishes.
