Chateau Bridane St-Julien 2017

$48

The Chateau la Bridane vines lie on high gravel outcrop immediately next to those of Léoville-Las Cases, and the wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (47%), Merlot (36%), Cabernet Franc (13%), and Petit Verdot (4%). We’re importing Bridane’s 2017 St-Julien, so a bit of patience will be required, but we found lots to like. Look for a traditional, serious nose, with inky notes of plums, cigar, iodine, and earth. The mouth is intense and firm but nicely polished, long but not voluminous — at 13% alcohol this is more like the classic Bordeaux of a generation ago.
