Laithwaites Summer Sauvignon

Moulis and Listrac

These are the less known and much – underrated sub classifications of the Haut Medoc. They lie further away from the Gironde estuary, and therefore do no benefit from the unique terroir, which gives the top areas of Bordeaux their complexity and exclusivity. These areas lie south of Pauillac, but north of Margaux, but also house several famous Chateaux, close to the village of Poujeaux, namely Chateau Chasse-Spleen.

Whilst still Cabernet Sauvignon dominant, they have a slightly higher proportion of the early ripening Merlot grape, and produce some fantastic value reds, full of richness and character, whilst maybe lacking the full on complexity (and price tag!), of their illustrious counterparts. They account for about 25% of total Haut Medoc production.
