2020 Kirkland Signature Saint-Julien Bordeaux

2020 Kirkland Signature Saint-Julien Bordeaux

This was a surprise and delight. The inaugural 2019 vintage of this new Kirkland offering was in stores in January of this year, so we weren’t on the lookout for the next one quite yet.

But what a nice surprise, along with the price going down, albeit only a few cents, but we like it not moving the other direction.

For $17.99 this remains a steal. There is just no other way to get juice from this famed area of Bordeaux any less.

The blend this year is the exact same as the prior one: 76% Merlot, and 24% Cabernet Sauvignon. As we noted in our previous review, most first wines from the left bank of Bordeaux are Cab driven, but second wines can sometimes be Merlot dominated, like this one.

Tasting notes are very similar to last year as well, signature Bordeaux on the nose, earthy, barnyard aromas; medium ruby in the glass with dark fruit flavor, blueberry, black cherry and plum; nice depth and structure.

We’re going to bump our score up one point to 92 with this new vintage. It is absolutely delicious, and one of the best Kirkland wine buys you’ll find.

I have not found the Bordeaux Superier 2021 in my Costco stores in Massachusetts. Any idea where I can find it?

Any idea if it will be carried in Tx Costco stores? I just checked & learned no Costco in the DFW area carries it.
