Haut-Medoc

This is the more southerly part of the Medoc that includes the prestigious communes of Margaux, Pauillac, St-Estephe, and St-Julien, as well as Listrac and Moulis. It includes four of the five First Growths, as well other extremely prestigious estates. Cabernet Sauvignon makes up the greatest proportion of most of the wines.
