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 l'Argenteyre Cru Bourgeois Medoc 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Boy did this blossom over the last 2 years. Bought it on a whim after it was recommended to me as a "sleeper" by a friend. Had one a couple of yrs ago and didn't really think much of it - man have things changed. No longer a unyielding child it has grown into a velvety smooth, dark fruited, twinged with oak and a modestly tannic wine. Vanilla an... Read More
