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 Cantemerle Haut-Médoc 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This 2006 is a very fine wine, but has been marred by too much oak; an earlier tasting showed that at least 10 years was required to tame this excess. Today ( Feb 2017) the wine is far more refined, the dry, cedar bark and blackberry nose and entry is smoother, but still quite tannic; there is a lot of oak. A tasty wine without doubt, but prod...

The Medoc Noir grape contributes the fieriness and the characteristic aroma of the Egri Bikaver wine. While the unfermented sugar of the Medoc Noir grape somewhat soothes the harshness of the other wines, the true velvety feel of the Egri Bikaver w... Read More
