Chateau Julien Bordeaux 2018

A fleshy and mellow Bordeaux full of chunky plummy fruit
with a hint of dark chocolate and a peppery finish.
Producer Note
The immaculate Château Julien covers 21 hectares of vines, including four hectares of
Bordeaux rouge, close to Lussac St Emilion. The château has received significant
investment and renovation in the vineyard and cellars by the current owner who
purchased the property from the family who had previously owned the Château for
three generations. They cultivate the vines sustainably and work closely alongside
innovative winemaker Ludovic Labarrere, who vinifies using egg shaped fermenters and
produces elegantly styled Bordeaux wines.
Vineyard
The vines are sustainably cultivated, with grass sown between the vine rows in order to
stabilise the soil and decompress it, sending the vine’s roots deep into the soils. The
vineyard is situated on silty and sandy soils which impart soft tannins, roundness and
delicacy to the wine. The yields are carefully controlled in order to concentrate the
flavours in the berries.
Winemaking
The grapes were meticulously sorted and carefully destemmed; ensuring the grapes
were not damaged and the berries remained whole. They were slowly fermented in
concrete tanks so all components from the skins were extracted to the desired level.
Fermentation lasted for between two to three weeks. The blend was aged in concrete
tanks for eight months, retaining the purity of fruit and the essence of the Bordeaux
terroir.
Tasting Note
An elegant wine, full of exuberant blackcurrant aromas. On the palate the fruit is
supported by a supple texture, beautiful balance and a refreshing finish.
