The wines of Saint Julien are distinguished by their complexity and the finesse of their aromas. The greatest wine lovers are also accustomed to saying that there are no small wines in Saint Julien.
Château Léoville Poyferré, Second Cru de Saint-Julien classified in 1855, produces its first wine from 80 hectares of gravel composed of pebbles and gravel cemented by clayey sands. It is now renowned throughout the world for its sumptuously velvety, fine and elegant wines, which are exceptionally long-lasting.
Pur produit de Saint-Julien, Henri Martin est le petit-fils d'un maitre de chai de Graud Larose, et fils d'un tonnelier du village de Beychevelle. Il y a fort longtemps que le destin de sa famille se frotte aux vignes qui marquent le paysage de Saint-Julien.
