Discover the Médoc appellations
The Médoc is located near the city of Bordeaux, in the Gironde department (region of Nouvelle-Aquitaine, Southwest France). It is divided in three different parts: the Bas-Médoc, the Haut-Médoc and the Landes in the south. Along the Gironde estuary, we find the Médoc vineyard, which essentially produces red wine. The soil is made of multiple layers of clay, sand and gravel. This richness helps the grapevines to better fare against any kind of harsh weather.
The wines made in the Médoc can be found in two prestigious rankings: the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855 (established during the Paris World Fair) and the 1932 Classification of the Crus Bourgeois (which was an initiative from the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce). The most famous appellations of this wine region are the Médoc, Saint-Julien, Saint-Estèphe, Pauillac, and of course Margaux.
