Dourthe Grands Terroirs Medoc

The Medoc is a AOC wine. AOC stands for Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée. This is a French certification to certain geographical regions protection for the use of the name. Long story short, basically, the word Medoc can only be used for wine made in the region of Medoc in Bordeaux, France.

Another popular example is the use of the word Champagne. Only sparkling wine made in the Champagne region can be sold as Champagne. For sparking wine made everywhere else, it can only be called sparkling wine. Unless of course if it’s made in Italy where it’s called Prosecco, Spain where it’s called Cava or Germany where it’s called Sekt.

There’s a lot of background information. Well, the reason is that I have forgotten how this wine tasted. Maybe I had too much of it. Hence, I need to write something else to keep to the minimum words of a review. The only thing that I vaguely remember for the review is that it was quite nice.

Made in France. Bought in Singapore.
