Medoc Wines

Mcdoc is one of the five main wine-producing areas of BORDEAUX, in south-western France. It produces only red wine.

In 1855 the 62 leading wines of the Medoc were classified by a group of wine brokers into five main categories ranging from premiers cms (first growths) through cinquiemes cms (fifth growths). Three wines were granted first growth status at that time – Chateau Lafite, Chateau Latour and Chateau Margaux – a classification that remained absolutely unchanged until 1973 when the distin-guished wine of Chateau Mouton-Roths-child was elevated from deuxieme to premier cru.

Medoc clarets go beautifully with almost anything, but they particularly complement steaks and roasts and light casserole dishes.
