St-Julien is located between Pauillac and Margaux, on the Left Bank of the Gironde River.  Among the four best-known regions of the Médoc, St-Julien produces the smallest amount of wine— the region consists of 2,200 acres, and its 26 vineyards produce approximately 6.5 million bottles of wine yearly.  Nevertheless, St-Julien has a reputation for its reliability and consistency in producing high quality, aromatic red wine.

The wines of St-Julien have a greater variety in character than is seen in neighboring regions.  This is due to the unique quality of St-Julien’s soil.  Its surface consists of smooth gravel, while its subsoil lies on a bed of sedimentary rock. The result is complex wines that are harmonious, well balanced, and aromatic of blackcurrant, cocoa, and cedar box.  As with other regions in the Médoc, the dominant grape is Cabernet Sauvignon.  Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot account for the other grapes grown in St-Julien.
