St. Julien

St. Julien is a transition communal appellation, linking the elegance of Margaux to the power of Pauillac. Lying in long undulations along the riverside, the soil is partially composed of small siliceous gravels. Labyrinths of water channels permit an efficient and natural evacuation of rain water. Along the Gironde riverside, calcareous subsoils absorb water efficiently, and are able to drain excess through the channels. Further inland, the soils are richer. The former is distinguishable for its fineness, the latter for its structure. St. Julien has the smallest production of wine of the four major regions of Left Bank, but the highest proportion of classified estates of all the regions of Bordeaux, which account for nearly 80 percent of the wine production of the region
