Wine of Saint-Julien appellation
One of the smallest appellations in the Médoc, with only 920 hectares (2,273 acres) of vineyards, Saint-Julien is nevertheless one of the most prestigious. Near the river port of Beychevelle, the terroir of Saint-Julien is distinguished by the quality of the soil and its excellent drainage. It sits on a terrace of gravel from the Garonne River that allows the vines to plunge their roots deep into the earth; the subsoil is composed of marl, pebbles, and alios. 

The wines of Saint-Julien offer an intense, complex aromatic palette and are usually a dense ruby red. They marry power and concentration to an almost feminine finesse and elegance. The fruit profile is dominated by blueberry, blackcurrant, blackberry, prune, tobacco, and licorice root. Pleasant tertiary notes develop with age: leather, fur, venison, and truffle. The velvety palate is dense, ample, and opulent, with powerful yet fine tannins. 

Cabernet Sauvignon is the main component in a blend with Merlot and (less) Cabernet Franc. The wines of Saint-Julien have excellent aging potential. There are eleven renowned Crus Classés in this appellation, the most noteworthy of which are Château Léoville Poyferré, Château Léoville Barton, Château Talbot, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou, Château Lagrange, Château Gruaud Larose, Château Léoville Las Cases, and Château Beychevelle.
