This Haut-Médoc property, bought in 1985, is of particular sentimental value to the family as Maryse Meyre is herself originally from Cussac Fort Médoc.
Château Julien neighbours the great terroirs of Saint Julien, the vines nestling on gravelly marls producing fruity, generous wines boasting harmonious tannins, in a style that has long made the reputation of Haut-Médoc.
Nathalie and Julien now manage this 15-hectare property, perpetuating traditional methods alongside modern techniques.
A rich and complex wine, with notes of blackcurrant and morello cherry. The delicate and velvety tannins linger beautifully in the mouth.

|Julien 2015 : James Suckling Score 91||This has a wealth of impressive dark berries with flashes of orange zest on the nose. The palate has smooth and fine tannins that are nicely compressed, forming a smooth and even finish. Drink or hold.|
