Sporting a deep garnet-purple color, the 2019 du Glana prances out of the glass with flamboyant black cherry preserves, warm cassis and wild blueberries scents plus hints of chocolate mint, tobacco leaf and Indian spices. Medium-bodied, the palate has a beautiful, velvety texture with loads of black fruit and exotic spice flavors highlighted by seamless freshness, finishing on a lingering aniseed note.

The wine's structure is very evident at this stage in its evolution. While that indicates fine aging potential, it also contrasts well the the elegant black fruits and final freshness.

Saint-Julien

The A.O.C Saint-Julien (968 hectares) was formalized in 1936. Located between Pauillac and Margaux both geographically and in style, it is one of the smallest Medoc appellation but the most consistent in quality. 18 active producers including 11 Classified Growths.
The appellation extends over 4.8 kilometers long by 3.2 kilometers wide and offers wines whose tannins have an incomparable finesse. What characterizes Saint-Julien is the terroir and the micro-climate. The terroir is a subtle blend between the contributions of stony alluvium from the Garonne and those from the Dordogne. The contributions therefore from the Pyrenees and the Massif Central. You should know that this agglomeration of rocks slowly broken then spread over the millennia is an exceptional case.
