On the left bank of the Gironde between Margaux and Pauillac lies the Saint-Julien appellation. The commune of Saint-Julien has exceptional terroirs, characterised by gentle undulations. Combined with gravel soils, these slopes ensure good rainwater drainage. The appellation produces exclusively a great red wine based on Cabernet Sauvignon and supplemented by Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Saint-Julien is a round, powerful wine, tannic but with a silky texture after years of ageing. It offers an intense and complex aromatic palette characterised by its dense ruby colour. It is not surprising to find here some of the most famous wines, such as Château Talbot, Château de Beychevelle, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou, Château Léoville-las-Cases and Château Langoa-Barton.
