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.

The Medoc Noir grape contributes the fieriness and the characteristic aroma of the Egri Bikaver wine. While the unfermented sugar of the Medoc Noir grape somewhat soothes the harshness of the other wines, the true velvety feel of the Egri Bikaver w... Read More

  • Chateau Cantemerle Haut-Médoc 2006

    Snoothrank:

    A little astringent yet but very. Doses of red berry fruits, blackberry and violets on the nose that follow to the palate well. Additional spice, earth and framing tannins balanced with good acidity leave leaves wanting more. Still has 3-5 years left. Drink or hold - 91 points - Paul Read More
