SAINT-JULIEN "LE PETIT CAILLOU" 75CL - 2ND CRU CLASSE
Appellation Saint-Julien Contrôlée
ORIGIN: France * Bordeaux
GRAPE VARIETIES: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Cabernet Franc
The nose gives bright, fresh fruit-morello cherries, sloes & hints of cedar & oak.
Very much an example of a modern, flashy St-Julien.
The palate is dense & opulent.
Full of the soft, yielding fruit for which the 2009's are famous, all held taut by a fine weave of tannic structure.
Very long ageing potential.
Aged in oak.
