Taste some of the world’s greatest wines
Located in the northwest of the Gironde department, between the Gironde estuary and the Atlantic coast, the Médoc region stretches from north to south over a length of 80 kilometers. It benefits from a temperate oceanic climate, both mild and humid. The Landes forest protects the vineyards from strong winds coming from the Aquitaine coast. This region has 8 famous appellations that you can discover thanks to the “Route des Châteaux” because of the different wine estates along this road, to go through the Médoc from south to north starting from Bordeaux.
In Pauillac, one of the most beautiful stopovers of this journey, you will have the opportunity to visit the Château Haut Bages Libéral, Grand Cru Classé. This estate, founded in the 18th century, dominates the Gironde estuary with its 30 hectares of vineyards and has a port with docks for summer walks.
