The Médoc is located near 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 and the 1932 Classification of the Crus Bourgeois. The most famous appellations of this wine region are the Médoc, Saint-Julien, Saint-Estèphe, Pauillac, and of course Margaux.
