2010 Bordeaux Futures: Saint-Julien Value Wines

2010 Bordeaux Futures: Saint-Julien Value Wines

Continuing with our series of posts on 2010 Bordeaux futures value wines, today, we will look at Saint-Julien, which lies just south of Pauillac on the Left Bank.

The Saint-Julien appellation is fairly small with 920 hectares – but about 80% of that land is owned by the classified growth chateaux. Though there are no First Growths in Saint-Julien, the appellation has plenty of big name estates.

Like Pauillac, Saint-Julien’s wines tend to be on the pricier side, but here are a few selections you can pick up for less than $65. (Prices current as of 7/11/2011.)

Lalande-Borie
