Clos Saint Julien is classified as a Grand Cru in Saint Emilion. It is a very small vineyard situated just outside the town limit on the north side of the village of St Emilion. The vineyard is on one single plot with all the vines surrounded by a wall, hence the name clos. It is mostly planted with the merlot grape variety.
It has a tiny winery building in the middle of the vineyard. Catherine Papon Nouvel manages this wine estate (which is a family owned property) since some years back when she took over from her father. The same is the case for two other Saint Emilion properties: Chateau Gaillard, which is bigger, and Chateau Petit Gravet Ainé. All three produce excellent wine, very different in style.
