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.

  • Chateau Poujeaux 2009


    The first Poujeaux that has slipped by the tonsils this year and it seems the very opaque, sang d'homme colour makes good its hedonic promise; the nose is blackberry, menthol and beet followed by a mature, balanced cedar plank, blackberry and vanilla entry. Very satisfying and ready to drink now, though can be cellared for a few more years. 8... Read More

  • Lanessan Haut-Médoc Premier 2010


    Here is yet another highly rated 2010 Red Bordeaux that does not deliver. Cedar and leather nose with some plum. Lighter body style, soft tannin, austere but with a medicinal note that is not enjoyable. After tasting many 2009 and 2010 Bordeaux, I cannot agree with the famous wine writers about the quality of these vintages. Seems like corruptio... Read More
