Saint Julien, Bordeaux. 13%
Dark red, savoury with a touch of metallic flavour, low acid. Lacks the intensity, acidity and fruit purity of the best 2002 wines. Disappointing for a St Julien. I noticed a smidge of caramelised wine at the top of the cork suggesting poor storage (exposure to heat). Perhaps not the best bottle.
Drink over the next 3 years (2008 – 2010).
