Médoc Wine


The Medoc is probably the best-known part of Bordeaux. It is located west of the Gironde, and north of the city of Bordeaux.

It did not always carry such prestige. Until the Dutch drained it in the mid-17th century, the Medoc was only a salt marsh.

It contains the communes of St-Julien, St-Estephe, Pauillac, Margaux, Moulis, and Listrac. The Medoc was first classified in 1855, and is home to four of the five First Growths identified in that classification. The wines are made mostly from Cabernet Sauvignon.

  • Ok, here's the site: about-france.com, proffering 'French wines--a ... ... and it lists a 'Medoc' region separate from a 'Bordeaux' region.It's been up and operating since 2003, apparently. How?

  • Chateau de Camensac 1994


    Lovely with herb and earth on the nose, then bit of mineral, in a classic style and with attractive complexity. Fresh, juicy and very refreshing in the mouth, not an ager but perhaps over the shorter terms this offers sweet red berry fruit and well balanced if modest structure. 87pts Read More

  • Chateau de Pez 2010


    Leather and raw meat pop on this hard, dry and gravelly nose. A bit rigid in the mouth, this is powerful with dark fruit on a medium bodied scale, A bit chewy and firm in the mouth, here's nice herbal nuance, lots of power for its size, particularly on the backend, and a slightly rustic and raw nature, but with really attractive follow through. ...

  • Château Cantemerle 2012


    Limestone and grape seed aromas greet the nose which is nuanced and detailed. In the mouth this is a bit firm and chewy though with an innate sweetness to the grippy fruit. It feels a bit extracted on entry, then thins out a bit on the palate, but with attractive blackcurrant fruit and firm minerality, finishes with great refreshing tannin. 88pts Read More

  • La Lagune 2012


    Smoky, oaky, and deeply aromatic showing some smoldering herbal and faint black currant complexity. Open on entry, and while not terribly complex, this is fresh and bright with gently austere tannins. Showing a bit of nuance on the backend, then finishing with great freshness and purity of fruit, this is lovely. Not an imposing wine but seductiv... Read More

  • Maucaillou 2012


    Olive, cedar, and a fairly heavy carriage of pencil lead oak on the nose which is tight complex and above pay grade with enough stuffing underneath to carry it well. Powerful on entry, and a bit extracted perhaps, showing notes of graphite, oak and fresh fruit in the mouth the mouth. A powerful yet elegant wine, a bit of a beast in fact though w... Read More
