The Médoc terroir stretch over 60 kilometres along the left bank of the Garonne river, on top quality soils. The different appellations produced on these terroirs produce wines that are remarkable for their powerful, complex and persistent aromas. A large number of Bordeaux Grands Crus Classés are produced in Médoc vineyard.



North-west of Bordeaux, this vast peninsula produces the world's most prestigious red wines.

Médoc means the country of the middle, it is indeed located on the 45th parallel, framed by the Atlantic Ocean to the west of which it is protected by an immense forest and the Gironde estuary to the east.

This situation gives it an ideal temperate climate.

The Médoc also has a unique terroir where the know-how of the men and the art of blending traditional grape varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot) have allowed to express all the quality of Médoc wines imbued with elegance and subtlety.

It is in the heart of this country that Grands Crus Classés in 1855, Crus Bourgeois, Crus Artisans, brands of Coopératives Cellars or Merchants each at their own level, express the exceptional character of the 8 Appellations of Controlled Origin of Médoc: Médoc, Haut-Médoc, Margaux, Moulis en Médoc, Listrac Médoc, Saint-Julien, Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe.
