St Julien

Small and perfectly formed, Saint-Julien boasts more Cru Classe vineyards than anywhere else in Bordeaux. Nestled next to the prestigious commune of Pauillac, Saint-Julien does not have a first growth but it is home to 11 other classed growth estates, including five second growths. Many of the estates are close to the river, around the village of Saint-Julien-Beychevelle, and make good use of the free-draining alluvial gravels which allow the vines to produce rich, densely flavoured fruit. Further away from the river, toward the village of St-Laurent, the wines are less delicate but still of excellent quality.

Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant variety used in the blended red wines of Saint-Julien and the appellation often wins praise for the delicate balance the wines achieve, combining the powerful, striking boldness of Pauillac with the more refined and sophisticated sensibilities of Margaux. Long-lived wines are the norm, and as they age they mature into gentle, refined, well-rounded wines of beautiful character.
