Médoc, a wine from Bordeaux France Vineyards

Médoc is an AOC for red wines in the Bordeaux wine region of southwestern France. The vineyards are mainly situated at the North of Saint-Estèphe.

Among the grape varieties permitted by INAO in Médoc, 50% of the viticultural area is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and to a lesser extent Petit Verdot and Malbec (locally called "Cot"). Also allowed within the AOC regulations are the varieties Cabernet Franc and Carménère.

These crus have a good potential to ageing, and are elaborate, with fine notes of crunchy fruit, vanilla and ripen fruit. The wines, soft and velvety, will fit perfectly with roasted duck or a chocolate fondant.
