Haut Medoc

Haut-Médoc is actually south of the the Médoc region. 5 Grands Crus Classés (Great Growths) are based in Haut-Médoc. All the others are in the adjacent and smaller in size appellations: Pauillac, Margaux, Saint Julien, Saint Estèphe.

Haut-Médoc - such as in Médoc - is a land of red wine. They are generous, not too powerful red wines with a delicate bouquet of vanilla and black fruits.
