FAQ What Kind of wine is Medoc?

Medoc wine is produced in the Wine Region of Bordeaux. Sitting on the Left Bank of the Gironde river estuary, it's close to the Atlantic coast and in proximity to sprawling forests. The geographic diversity of this fascinating wine region gives the final products a distinct character. Medoc wines are known to be full bodied with high tannins, low acidity and medium to high alcohol levels.

How many wines will I taste during this tour?

Unlike other wine tasting sessions that you might have followed around the world, the tastings in Bordeaux are not as generous in terms of pours . The amount of wine poured is not what many would expect but here it is all about elegance, fruit, quality, aromas and flavors rather than quantity. Each Chateau will have you taste their premium wine and what we call the 'second' wine of the estate. Sometimes, Chateau owners also add a tasting of some other wine if they happen to be the owners of another Chateau in Bordeaux. So basically, at each winery visited it will be 2 to maximum 4 wines tasted. If you wish to taste more wine, lunch in Pauillac is a perfect location to sample other appellations - it is easy to order wines by the glass. To further enhance your wine experience, it is always possible to buy some bottles at the wineries visited.

What does Médoc mean?

What does Medoc mean?
Historically, the word comes from latin: Meduli Litus that could mean 'in between seas' or middle of the land. Another theory is that it bears its name from the Medulles tribe that was present in the area during the Iron Age.

Today, Medoc is best known as a unique wine-growing region part of the Bordeaux wine region. Sitting on the Left Bank of the Gironde river estuary, it's close to the Atlantic coast and in proximity to sprawling forests. The geographic diversity of this fascinating wine region gives the final products a distinct character.
There are 8 regional or communal appellations that make up the Medoc wine region, the most famous being Margaux, Saint Julien, Pauillac and Saint Estephe.

However, in the past years winemakers located on the appellations of Moulis, Listrac and Haut Médoc have made great progress in the quality of the wines produced.
Often blending cabernet sauvignon, malbec, merlot and petit verdot grapes, the wines are in general intense, complex, structured, robust and round.

The main aromas that can be found in Medoc wines are liquorice, red and black small berry fruit, and roasted with ageing. The ageing of these wines range from 5 to 50 years.
