The wines of St Julien are, surely, the epitome of Bordeaux, are they not? Sandwiched as it is between Pauillac to the north, with its three first growth estates, and Margaux to the south, with its obvious first growth, this small commune still makes a huge contribution to the wines of the left bank and of Bordeaux as a whole, with a distinctive and elegant style and the promise of consistency which is perhaps unrivalled by its neighbours. It is this admirable array of qualities that is responsible for my opening thought; grand though the wines of Latour, Lafite, Mouton and Margaux may be, they will never possess that quintessential quality that is St Julien. A quality that I might describe as a precision, although as soon as I write that it is clear that this one word goes only a very short way to describing the fine quality of some of the wines of this commune.

Although the commune is not blessed with a Premier Grand Cru Classé estate as its neighbours to the north and south are, St Julien is in possession of five reliable and excellent properties at the Deuxième Cru level, something that neither Pauillac nor Margaux can boast. Although each of these properties may have its detractors, and there are some points of criticism with which I would agree, these five estates are without doubt the standard bearers for the appellation, the figureheads behind which the rest of the commune marches. And they are responsible, certainly in the case of Léoville-Las-Cases and Léoville-Barton – on the other three I would be content to debate the matter – for some of the greatest wines in all Bordeaux.
