    January 22, 2020 - Readers need to think of it as a true classified growth, although technically it is not. 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. Ages 20+ years. Paid $66/bottle

    December 24, 2019 - Good but lack complexity to give a better score. I don't think it will improve with time.

    December 14, 2019 - This is definitely approachable now. Great balance, full bodied, med/high acidity. Loads of dark black fruit on the nose that follows through on the palate with cedar and chocolate, blackcurrant and some tobacco. Really good example of a second label wine providing great value for money although still not a cheap bottle.

    November 19, 2019 - Had it twice now out of 375s. First time was rather dumb and monolithic, too much oak and earth, rather bitter fruit. The second time, gave it more air - 2 hrs instead of just 1 - and was rewarded with a much more fulfilling experience. I don’t think the difference in air time explains the difference in experiences. More likely there is bottle variation. At any rate the better example still started off with quite an angular attack but it also has rich dark berry and pomegranate, along with roast beef and a sort of chickory. For a 2009, still a bit forbidding. Should be left alone for a good long time in the cellar or given ample air before tasting.
    Score: 91. But probably going to improve. Relative to expectations: +

    (Clos de Marquis St Julien) A contemporary of Léoville-Las-Cases; same estate, different vineyards. 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. IPT 62, alcohol 13.8%, new oak 25%. Nicely refined fruit character here, open and fresh. The palate starts off with a gently composed substance, but then shows a darker cherry character to the fruit, although it maintains a freshness throughout. Good supple tannins, not overbearing, nice acidity too. At the moment it is very soft and youthful but it will come together with time. Just a touch of fleeting heat detracts. But overall an understated wine which could be very good.
