An ancestral terroir

production best suited to the nature of the soil. In Listrac and Moulis, there is evidence of land occupancy since Gallo-Roman times, and the land has been given over to vines and grain since the Early Middle Ages. During the 18th century, vineyards replaced grain and continued the move towards the single crop we know today. These old maps show that even three centuries ago, the best gravel outcrops were already planted with vineyards. At the time, farmers were only just beginning to acknowledge the quality of the gravel terroirs. Thanks to grape variety selection, vine row spacing in vineyards, the numerous breakthroughs in vinification science and the painstaking work of winemakers, among other factors, the ancestral terroirs of Listrac and Moulis today offer a fabulous location for elite winemaking in the Médoc.
