Like St-Estephe, St-Julien is the only other top commune in the Haut Medoc not to possess a First Growth but it makes up for this omission with five Super Second Growths, two Third Growths and four Fourth Growths. It is the smallest of the major appellations but 85% of its land registers as part of the 1855 classification and it has the largest classified growth in the Left Bank in Chateau Lagrange.
Situated between Margaux and Pauillac, St-Julien’s wines have the perfume of the former with the power of the latter. Its most important chateaux are Leoville-Poyferre, Ducru-Beaucaillou and Beychevelle.
