Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Saint-Julien 2006 was crafted by Chateau in Saint-Julien de Beychevelle, which was ranked Grand Cru Classé in 1855. This Left Bank wine shows great structure for its age and an elegant bouquet of dark cherry, plum, rose, cigar, leather and oak. Made mainly from Cabernet Sauvignon, blended with Merlot and Petit Verdot, Saint-Julien 2006 is supple with lovely tannins, a medium body and a long smooth finish. Flavours of dark cherry, plum, fern, tobacco, dark chocolate, leather, mushroom and oak develop into nice complexity. Made from a powerhouse AOC, Saint-Julien 2006 provides a glimpse of a Grand Cru Classé type of wine. Enjoy!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
