“This is a vibrant and expressive Claret – classically built and drinking beautifully now. Deep garnet in colour, it took 30 minutes to open up, offering barnyard, leather, forest floor, tobacco and smoke over a layer of discreet black fruit. On the palate, the wine gradually builds with layers of leather, cedar and spice, iron filings and petrichor, with amazingly fresh acidity and almost tart red fruit, with soft and velvety tannins that show lovely resolution. There’s great balance here, combining power with delicate acidity and a saline element that appears on the mid-palate. It all leads to a long, lively and mouth-watering finish. This Saint-Julien is drinking perfectly now and should remain in its drinking plateau for another five to 10 years.”
