One of the finest over-achieving efforts in this vintage as well as a “best buy” for a top-flight St.-Julien, this 2008 reveals a boatload of sweet cassis & black cherry fruit intertwined with notions of liquorice, smoke & oak. This sensational wine is already drinking well and will be even better with 2 – 3 years of cellaring. It should last for 20 – 25 years.

Another blockbuster, long-term wine from proprietor Anthony Barton, this 2008 is among the biggest, most back-strapping efforts of the vintage.
