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 Bernadotte 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This 2009 Bernadotte is very good indeed; it is perfectly representative of the upper Medoc with some fir shank (perhaps white spruce), cherry, and organic soil on the nose. The entry gives a medium density with distinctive cherry and cedar mid-palate. Nice warm, slightly chewy, medium finish. Worthy. 89 points. Read More

  • I just opened up a 2010 Les Hauts de Trintaudon Haut Medoc Bordeaux wine.  Smells nice but I think it needs some air to improve a bit more.  I'm just going to sit here and watch it while I contemplate my navel.  Read More

  • Chateau Graves des Quartre Moulins Medoc Cru Bourgeois 1999

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine from the website ... for £7. It is from the Medoc appellation. Geographically the Medoc is the entire peninsular north of the City of Bordeaux but the AOC of that name created in 1936 only refers to 16 communes at the northern end. The area is sometimes called the Bas-Medoc or Lower-Medoc [though not on wine labels]... Read More

  • Chateau Potensac Cru Bourgeois Bordeaux 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This Medoc can take on quite a few more years, but, like the French, I like power, and this wine has exactly that: there is ample (more than ample, if you are North American) oak, but there is also deep Cabernet Sauvignon fruit - if just a teensy weensy bit green. Tannic with that pucker on the mouth, there is the usual fut de chene flavour, but... Read More

  • Château Chasse-Spleen Moulis En Médoc 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This little wine from that island in Medoc known as Moulis almost never disappoints a discerning taste and the 2009 is better than ever, a deep coagulated blood red colour with a nose dominated by brambleberry, wine-dipped cigar and cedar. Entry is heavy with sunken tannin, deep cassis flavours and a rich, long, satisfying finish. Although it w... Read More

  • Chateau Labadie Cru Bourgeois Medoc 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This nicely behaved Medoc emits some nice blackberry (cassis), black cherry and some cedar bark on the nose, and the colour is deepest red - almost sanguine. Some vanilla notes with a hint of tannin as the wine finishes quite smoothly with slightly wood-laden blackberry. You can keep for several years, but drinking fine now. Decent value. 88 p...

  • Chateau la Gorce Medoc Cru Bourgeois 2011

    Snoothrank:

    If you like wine from the Medoc with its slightly more rustic, less ripened structure and lower cost, this is for you: there is a definitive cassis nose with a slight hint of sweet corn (something I have noted but not reported previously), a very Medoc entry of cedar plank, black currant and wet earth on the palate. Finish is quite long and sa... Read More
