Chateau les Ormes 2018 Saint-Julien Bordeaux
Saint-Julien is home to more classified growth Bordeaux chateau than any other AOC in Bordeaux, and in fact the vineyards of Les Ormes used to be part of the 2nd growth classified Leoville Barton estate. The wine shows absolutely gorgeous aromas of dark cherries, dark plum, spices, floral, licorice along with some hints of tobacco. It’s beautifully balanced and supported by velvety tannins which are well integrated. The finish is long and caressing with dark fruits and a spicy edge.
