“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.”

Greg Sherwood 92

"A real work of artisanal craftsmanship offering up the most seductive, fleshy, fragrant blueberry and cassis scented aromatics with a subtle kiss of leafy cedar and mocha spice. Medium to deep ruby in colour, this wine is tightly packed with earthy bramble berry fruits, red plum, blueberry crumble and a dusty, dried baking spice complexity. The tannins are soft and approachable yet sufficiently structured and inviting adding extra ballast and intensity to the long, creamy, dense finish. A very impressive wine that always defies its price point. Drink now and over the next 3 to 5 years. 92 points – Greg Sherwood MW" [Greg Sherwood, 02/03/2023]
