St-Julien 2021 in bottle: Overview plus top-scoring wines

See tasting notes and scores for the top-performing St-Julien wines from the difficult 2021 vintage in Bordeaux now that they have been bottled.

Proximity to the Gironde estuary meant that adverse effects from frost were a little less damaging here than elsewhere, with a slightly higher yield in 2021 than 2020, but mildew still caused problems for the Merlot, with a reliance on strict selection, and Cabernet (Sauvignon and Franc) as in other appellations.

Yields were around 20-30% lower than previous years in some cases.
