Listrac

Listrac is the furthest from the Gironde of all the named communes, and comprises some of the highest land in the Médoc. The soil is mainly clay and limestone on a gentle rise, and this contributes to the style – which is rather austere and dense compared to its more famous neighbours. The wines are deeply-coloured and noticeably tannic in youth, needing a few years of bottle-ageing to show at their best.

Listrac is the furthest from the Gironde of all the named wine-producing communes. At about 40m above sea level, it is some of the highest land in the Médoc. The soil is mainly clay and limestone on a gentle rise, and this contributes to the wine style – which is usually rather austere and dense when compared to its more famous neighbours.

Listrac wines typically have a higher proportion of Merlot than other Médoc wines. They are medium to full-bodied and have been described as having the fruit and finesse of St Julien combined with the firmness and structure of St Estèphe. They are often deeply-coloured and noticeably tannic when young, and need a few years of bottle-ageing to show at their best.
