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.

  • Sandra and I celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary last night in Washington ... ... for Sandra and a 2010 Medoc for Allen.  The bottles of wine were very expensive here so we opted for glasses of wine as you can see.  Dessert was on the house for our anniversary - all three of those were placed on our table. Overall a very nice meal and tem... Read More

  • Lanessan Haut-Médoc Premier 2010

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Château Potensac Red Bordeaux Blend Médoc 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Notes of sour cherry, cedar shanks, plum and blackberry on the nose - very Medoc. Entry is smooth, with degrading, silky oak and rich Cabernet Sauvignon cassis predominating. Finish is quite long and satisfying, if just a tad sour. Ready now; holding is not required for improvement. Good value. 88 points Read More

  • Château Pomeys Moulis En Médoc Bordeaux 2009

    Snoothrank:

    A Lot 18 Selection. I think it a bit too young still, but very interesting nonetheless. Opens with a mint/licorice with a hint of caramel. Grape/Cherry Jelly and a long long finish of thyme and mint and some barnyard funk. Decanted it and it tasted a bit more soft over an hour or so. Interesting end notes of lavender perfume. A bit dryer than I ... Read More
