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 Saint Ahon Haut-Medoc 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Rebuilt during the Napoleonic order, this property (Haut-Medoc) is a bit of a surprise; (try finding the name of this saint in any listing, par example), there are gobs of blackberry, cherry and a hint of vanilla on the palate, and the nose is of cherry-dipped cigar. Much better than expected, with a soft, metallic finish. 90. Read More

  • Chateau Grand Bouchon "Revelations" Medoc 2012
