The great history of the Médoc is a succession of unforgettable stories which have created the character
and personality of an exceptional land.
Planted with rye before the arrival of vines,
with the passage of time the Médoc has endured numerous changes of fortune.Wars and diseases have never
broken the spirit of its people, and vines have continued to hold pride of place among its inhabitants.
This ancestral attachment led to the creation of
the Commanderie du Bontemps
which promotes the Médoc’s values and ideas to the four corners of the earth.
In their pursuit of a much-envied standard of winemaking through the centuries, these amateurs of fine
wine have written the Médoc’s exceptional history.
