At the heart of the Medoc vineyard lies AOC Listrac-Médoc, a plateau with beautiful gravel ridges where the vine flourishes. Less than 2 miles from the village one finds Château Lafon in the center of a hamlet bearing its name. One of the oldest wine estates in the area, it owes its fame to a great winemaker of the last century, Mr. Dominique Duat.
