La BORDEAUXTHÈQUE

Saint-Julien

If Saint-Julien AOC doesn't include any First Growth, it is nonetheless one of the most prestigious appellations in Bordeaux. A large number indeed of Crus Classés is located here: 11 precisely on the 24 existing estates, including 5 Second Growths, 2 Third Growths and 4 Fourth Growths.

Saint-Julien is in the middle of Médoc on the left bank of the Garonne, around 40 km North of Bordeaux. It covers 920 hectares, planted mostly in Cabernet Sauvignon, completed by Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It sits on a clay and limestone substrate with a gravel and round pebbles soil. Pebbles were formed during the Quaternary when brought by the Garonne from the melding Pyrénées glaciers. These sedimentary deposits, specially concentrated on the left bank, form gravel hillocks that are naturally drained et well exposed to sunlight. The great terroirs bording the river are protected by the near Gironde estuary which regulates weather conditions. The best Médoc wines are definitely programmed as a result of this natural situation.

Saint-Julien Crus are outstandingly well-built, balanced and sappy ; they display very elegant tannins with a splendid aromatic fineness and an exceptional ability for ageing.
