Margaux & Saint-Julien

Compared with Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe to the north, Margaux and Saint-Julien wines tend to express a different style with quite a bouncy and voluptuous character. All things being equal, there is more structure in Saint-Julien and an intrinsic delicacy in Margaux. Those differences are tangible but vary from Château to Château according to wine making style and terroir.
