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.

  • D, the "observed" incidences of doing blinds--not anecdotes of ... a ... a lower end but solid Haut Medoc, a couple different bottles of Napa or Alexander Valley tossed in, a couple from a vintage that wasn't the vintage of the decade/century/millenium--then you actually get a little honesty in the game. So a few people got 10 - 12 out of 12. ...
