    October 8, 2021 - Still drinking really well. Opened for 3 hours and then decanted for about an hour before drinking. Probably could have used more time as was still a bit closed.

    October 4, 2021 - Classic, old school Bordeaux. Great freshness and complexity for the age. Beautiful nose of cedar and earth, in a light, burgundian style. Thank you critics for marking this as an off vintage in general. Drink

    February 21, 2021 - Same.
    Decant this wine just before serving.
    Cooler vintage but excellent wine.

    January 23, 2021 - Drinking really well right now; even in half bottle.
    Remarkable for what was a very average vintage in terms of ripeness.
    Still a classic Medoc wine. Was this one of the last vintages where you can make that claim?

    October 17, 2020 - Drinking really well. Not as complex as I would have liked, but a beautiful St Julian nonetheless. Opened about 4 hours before drinking and then decanted.
