    A jewel of a wine made from a clutch of low yielding 50 year old plus vines in Beychevelle, surrounded by vines from the famed St Julien crus of Ducru-Beaucaillou and Gruaud-Larose.  Aged in two to ten year old barrels for three years and racked every four months it is no wonder that in its youth it doesn’t taste anything like wines aged in new oak then rushed into bottle after eighteen months. Whether the authorities deem his wine St Julien or Vin de France, it’s all the same to owner Jean-François Fillastre.  This is strictly for those with a little patience who can age this wine until at least 2018.  Given proper ageing, its purity and finesse make it more than a rival for its grand cru classé neighbours. For drinking 2019 to 2036.
