Listrac-Médoc AOC

Description to Listrac-Médoc AOC

One of the six communes (along with Margaux, Moulis, Pauillac, Saint-Estèphe and Saint-Julien) within the French Haut-Médoc area that are appellations in their own right and may bear the commune name on the bottle label. The vineyards cover 640 hectares of vines. The name Listrac was added to Médoc in 1986 to avoid confusion with the similar-sounding Lirac area in the Rhône Valley. The area between Margaux and Saint-Julien lies a little further back from the Gironde and has heavier soils. Here there are none of the 61 châteaux that were included in the Grand Cru list when Bordeaux was classified in 1855. Just under 30 estates are classified as Cru Bourgeois and a dozen as Cru Artisan. The red wines in the typical Bordeaux blend (left bank of the Gironde) of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot are developing somewhat more rapidly than in other communes. Well-known wineries are Château Clarke, Château Fonréaud, Château Fourcas-Dupré, Château Fourcas-Hosten and Château Peyre-Lebade.
