"The dark ruby 2005 Clos St.-Julien offers up notes of plum, black cherries, crushed rock and flowers. It is medium-bodied, elegant, but at the same time, substantial. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2032." (WA)

"Still young, tannic and with a hard to crack, stony, austere, mineralistic side. Clearly the juicy, plums are ripe and I like the complex, floral aspect, but the wine is at least for me, hard to get a handle on. 88 points - Tasted Nov 14, 2016" (JL)
