Description

Château Julia is located in the heart of the Médoc region - 7km from St Laurent-Médoc in a place called Semignan. The property produces two recognized appellations: AOC Pauillac and AOC Haut Médoc.


The vineyard

The vineyards of the property in the Pauillac appellation are spread over 62 ares located on an exceptional terroir, fairly close to the river, between two big names that are Château Latour and Château Lynch-Bages. This small production area makes it one of the smallest vineyards in Pauillac.


Fruit concentrate

Indeed, the estate has chosen - contrary to traditional trends - to make Merlot-dominated wines in the composition of the grape varieties. The wine from oak barrels is therefore a wine to be drunk young with fruity and rounded flavors on the palate. All the work of the property goes in this direction and the result is convincing: balance, roundness, finesse, fruit and length. A very large Pauillac to discover without hesitation.

Pauillac

The Pauillac appellation is located on the left bank of the Gironde and brings together exceptional climatic and geological conditions, which allows it to produce very great wines. Capital of the Médoc viticole, the port city of Pauillac gave its name to the appellation. The AOC can boast of having three wines in the first five classified growths of 1855: Lafite Rothschild, Latour and Mouton Rothschild. On its 1,200 ha of vines, Pauillac produces 54,000 hl of red wines each year. Note that Mouton-Rothschild also produces a white wine.
Pauillac is a jewel of the Médoc, it indeed has 18 classified growths which represent 85% of its production. Perched on a beautiful rump of gravels, its terroir is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon assembled with Merlot and to a lesser extent with Petit Verdot and Malbec.
