The name Médoc
The name is given after the Celts who lived in the north of Bordeaux long time ago. “Land of the Medulli” was the origin name and changed after time to “Medullicus” and finally to Médoc, a famous wine region in France today. This part of Bordeaux belongs to one of the oldest wine regions in general.
The Médoc has had a long history of making very full-bodied red wines with high tannins, low acidity, and medium to high alcohol levels: in other words, the classic Bordeaux blend. While red Bordeaux can be thought of as wine from St-Émilion, Pomerol, or Graves, the Médoc is still considered the quintessential Bordeaux.
This region consists of more than 12,000 wineries and offers a variety of high quality wines. Most of the first classified red wines from 1855 came from the region Médoc.
