In the reign of Louis XIII, in 1638, a certain Jean de Moytié, Counsellor of the Bordeaux parliament and a noble bourgeois of the town, owned a beautifully sloped gravelly vineyard near the River.

These were the first estates to appear in the Médoc parishes, which were later to become commune appellations. Read less
