“This Haut-Médoc property, bought in 1985, is of particular sentimental value to the family as Maryse Meyre is herself originally from Cussac Fort Médoc.

Château Julien neighbours the great terroirs of Saint Julien, the vines nestling on gravelly marls producing fruity, generous wines boasting harmonious tannins, in a style that has long made the reputation of Haut-Médoc.

Nathalie and Julien now manage this 15-hectare property, perpetuating traditional methods alongside modern techniques.”

Greg Sherwood 92

This 50% Cabernet Sauvignon / 50% Merlot blend is a serious offering that shows intricate aromatics of damson plum, black currant, sweet cherry tobacco with underlying notes of sweet cedar oak, bramble berry and graphite spice. The palate strikes an excellent balance between silky black fruited depth, a creamy texture and broody red berry fruit power. Impressive balance and an all-round generous personality with a vibrant fresh tangy persistence. A truly delicious wine from a block buster Bordeaux vintage. Drink on release and over 3 to 5+ years.
