Regional profile: St-Julien

Chateau Lagrange, St-Julien wines
Château Lagrange

St-Julien probably has the strongest identity of any of the major Médoc communes as it’s the most compact, and the smallest. It has much in common with part of Pauillac, just to the north, but its wines tend to be more virile than most from Margaux to the south. Moreover, it is separated from Margaux by a broad strip of Haut-Médoc vineyards. The St-Julien appellation is restricted to red wines only, but two estates – Talbot and Lagrange – have long had a good reputation for their white wine as well.
