Bordeaux from Medoc
with Ty Cline
Fri Nov 9, 2018 5-7pm
The Médoc is arguably the most famous red wine district in the world, home to many of the greatest and most renowned names of Bordeaux. It stretches north-west from the city of Bordeaux with the Gironde estuary to the east. The vineyards extend up to eight miles from the river and run for about 50 miles northwards. It is a surprisingly dull landscape, with the best land found on gravelly outcrops.
The most northerly, low-lying vineyards are classified as Bas-Médoc, whilst those on higher ground, closer to the city of Bordeaux, are entitled to the Haut-Médoc appellation. Within that appellation, there are further communal or village appellations, namely Listrac and Moulis, and the four great names of St. Estèphe, Pauillac, St Julien and Margaux. As a rule of thumb, the greatest wines are made at those properties closest to the river. The classic left bank Bordeaux is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdit, Malbec or Carmenere.
We will be presenting wines from throughout the “Left Bank” that won’t break the bank! We are featuring:
Chateau Laffitte Laujac 2014, Medoc
