One of the few non-1855-classified estates in St-Julien, one that has plenty of the elegant balanced signature of the appellation at relatively affordable prices. This has plum and cassis fruits, soft floral edging and integrated oak. Very enjoyable. Drinking Window 2020 - 2032. ... More details

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 du Glana is scented of black currants, black berries and mulberries with touches of beef, cigar box and menthol. The palate is medium to full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins and a good fruit core, finishing long.

Rated 90 by James Suckling
The full black-fruit aromas make this generous and well-rounded wine with rather gentle tannins easy to enjoy now. The finish is very supple and with clearer contors, this would rate even more highly. Drink now or in 2019 and 2020.

Varietal: Red Bordeaux

There are few regions in the world with stricter regulations in regards to wine production and grape varietals than those found in Bordeaux, France. Here, in the home of the world's finest wines, the type and quality of grapes used is of utmost importance, and the legendary wineries which work on the banks of the Gironde river have mastered the careful art of juice blending to find the perfect balance for their produce. Whilst there are six 'official' Bordeaux grapes, the two key varietals for almost every fine Bordeaux wine are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and with good reason. Whilst Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are renowned for their acidity and astringency, strong fruit and spice flavors and full body, Merlot grapes are notably rounded, soft, fleshy and lighter on tannin. The combination of these two varietals, along with a small percentage of (commonly) Petit Verdot or Cabernet Franc, is the perfect balancing act – the two grape varietals cancel out each others weaker points, and accentuate all that is good about the other.

Situated mainly around the Dordogne and Gironde rivers, Bordeaux makes the most of its humid climate and rich, clay and gravel based soils to grow some of the finest examples of red and white grape varietals on earth. Wineries in this region have been in operation for hundreds of years, and have carefully developed the expertise required for the production of carefully balanced and utterly delicious blended red and white wines, alongside some exceptional single variety bottles. Many of the chateaux found in Bordeaux have become household names, due to their prestige and the excellence of their products, grown with love and dedication by heritage wineries in this beautiful and special region.
