Bordeaux 2011: avaliação dos vinhos de Saint-Julien (Decanter)

Château Léoville Las Cases

Para uma safra considerada "mediana" em Bordeaux, as primeiras avaliações da Decanter demonstram que a maioria dos vinhos está ótima. Se o radical corte de preços anunciado se confirmar, pode voltar a valer a pena adquirir estas preciosidades vínicas do Médoc.

Conheça a seguir as avaliações dos vinhos de Saint-Julien:

Chateau Saint-Pierre, Grand Cru Classe, Saint-Julien 2011
Very good floral but firm fruit-- a very good expression of Saint-Julien from a château that is on top form. Drink 2015-2025. (17 points)

Chateau Lagrange, Grand Cru Classe, Saint-Julien 2011
