    September 12, 2021 - Half. Halfway through the case now and this is lovely. Mid to full ruby. Cedar, cigar and blackcurrant nose. Tannins nicely resolved, classic St Julien profile. Worked well will a roast sirloin of beef, but very pleasant in its own right. Very enjoyable. ***

    July 30, 2021 - Good St Julien typicity shown in a great year. Drinking now. I don’t see much potential for upside if you hold because I don’t think this is going to develop any more complexity and/or length. It’s smooth and well put together. Very likeable and and shows a few glimmers of the grand vin on the P. On opening fresh and energetic, 2-4 hours in a decanter and it all came together.

    December 21, 2020 - Ruby to the edge. Medium-bodied, with mature cedar-scented fruit, fine tannins and good persistence.

    April 6, 2020 - This is really starting to sing. Fresh red fruit, a hint of cedar, and mellow tannin. At its peak but no rush.
