The appellation of Haut-Medoc is spread over almost a third of the Medoc vineyard and its rich palette of flavours may surprise even the most discerning. The succession of quality vintages has enabled the area to flourish in new areas. Consisting of gravel, limestone, clay and sand, the soil is extremely diverse. This partly explains the differences in style between the different AOC wines. However, Haut-Medoc wines are united with the same generous balance, a harmonious bouquet and a remarkable finish.
