Firm, rich and bright, this is an enjoyable wine with clear St-Julien character. The tannins creep up on you, suggesting that this wine will age well. Although subtle, it's also hugely promising with slate, charcoal and menthol notes joined by finely-placed and precise tannins. The vineyards were unaffected by frost, with a yield of 50hl/ha. Christophe Ollivier is consultant here, making the Meffre stable one of the rare St-Juliens to stray from the Boissenot embrace. Drinking Window 2025 - 2038 Read more

James Suckling

Tangy and fresh St.-Julien with raspberry and blood-orange aromas and flavors. Medium body, fine tannins and a crisp finish. Fluid center palate. Shows focus and tension. Drink in 2021.

Expert Review
Jacques Perrin - Vinifera

En finesse, le nez évoque les fruits. Très jolie bouche, bien construite, avec une chair pulpeuse et une trame tannique savoureuse. Finale sur les fruits frais.

Antonio Galloni MW - Vinous

The 2017 Glana is plump, juicy and delicious. Succulent red cherry, raspberry and floral notes give the 2017 its distinctly bright, floral personality. This fruity, mid-weight Saint-Julien looks like it is built for near and medium term drinking.

Expert Review
Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider

Medium bodied, forward and approachable, here you'll find a cassis, earth, cedar and licorice-filled wine with a sweet and tart, bright red berry finish.

Expert Review
Neal Martin - Vinous

The 2017 du Glana has a simple, rather one-dimensional bouquet that lacks real personality. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin, moderate acidity but lacks real persistency on the grippy but somehow charmless finish.

Expert Review
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW - Wine Advocate

Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the nose of the 2017 du Glana is closed and earthy with tar, cassis, cedar and tobacco aromas with a waft of herbs. Medium-bodied, it is a little hollow/dilute with a chewy frame and abrupt finish. Drinking Window : 2020 - 2026

Expert Review
René Gabriel - WeinWisser

Dunkles, tiefes Granat mit violetten Reflexen. Wunderschdnes Holunder- und Brombeerbouquet, dahinter Rosenholz und Preiselbeeren. Cremiger Gaumen, reifes Extrakt, die Gerbstoffe zei-gen viel Souplesse, gute Balance im Wein. lm gebündelten Finale durch die würzige Rasse unterstützt. Der ideale Wein für Finessenliebhaber.         17/20 2023 - 2039 17/20

Winemakers Note

Château Du Glana is located on the banks of the Gironde estuary, between the villages of Beychevelle and Saint-Julien, opposite the famous Château Ducru-Beaucaillou. After several other owners, Mr Gabriel Meffre bought Château Du Glana in 1961. In the following years, the vineyard went from 5 to 59 hectares, still in nearly a single block. Helped by his young sons Ludovic and Julien, Jean-Paul Meffre now looks after the estate. They are motivated by a major ambition: to achieve the estate's full potential.
