St-Julien is home to some of the most prodigious winemakers with 11 classed growths of the commune reading like the wish-list of wine lovers!
With a classic 'left bank' nose of smoky blackberry fruit and pencil lead the palate is rich and rounded with assertive tannins, ample fruit and well integrated oak. Perfect with beef or lamb.
Sarget de Gruaud Larose shows all the hallmarks of the great St-Julien wine, but with a fruitiness that makes it more approachable when young.
"A wine of extraordinary charm and elegance, the dark garnet-colored 1985 Ducru-Beaucaillou has a floral, cedary nose intermixed with red and blackcurrants.". 92 points, Robert Parker
