This opaque purple-colored muscular full-bodied classically made St.-Julien displays impressive concentration chewy highly-extracted flavors of black fruits iron earth and spicy wood and a powerful mouth-feel. A pure uncompromising traditionally-styled wine it is to be admired for its authenticity class and quality. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2035. Readers seeking classic muscular extremely long-lived Bordeaux should always keep this outstanding classified growth in mind. It continues to sell for a price well below its intrinsic value.
