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.

A genuine patchwork of historical developments, the real history of the Médoc reveals its true intensity when its wines, crafted by the blending of the different grape varieties, display all their complexity.
