Listrac is more distant from a river and from the ocean than any other Bordeaux appellations.

At the beginning of the last century, Listrac was one of the largest appellation in Médoc.

The traditional link between Listrac and Moulis should not prevail. Actually, the wine is closer to Saint-Estèphe. Listrac produces vigorous and tannic red wines.
