Chateau Julien Bordeaux 2015
From the excellent 2015 Bordeaux vintage
The immaculate Château Julien covers 21 hectares of vines, including four hectares of Bordeaux rouge, close to Lussac St Emilion. The château has received significant investment and renovation in the vineyard and cellars by the current owner who purchased the property from a family who had previously owned the Château for three generations. They cultivate the vines sustainably and work closely alongside innovative winemaker Ludovic Labarrere, who vinifies using egg shaped fermenters and produces elegantly styled Bordeaux wines.
16pts - Matthew Jukes, 2017
A bright juicy wine, full of exuberant blackcurrant aromas. On the palate the vibrant fruit is supported by a supple texture and a refreshing finish. From a great vintage and drinking very well now, a perfect match to beef, cheese or lamb. Will also age well if stored in good conditions. A blend of 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc.
