The third of the great Communes of the Medoc (I am doing this alphabetically) is Saint-Estephe. This Commune is the furthest away from Bordeaux in the Medoc. It is also the largest wine-producing Commune in the Medoc. The consensus of most of the readings that I have discovered is that Saint-Estephe wines are very tannic and firm when they are young, develop very slowly, and are considered the least supple of the wines of the Medoc.
Here are the wines from the 1855 Classification of the Medoc.
Deuxiemes Crus (Second Growths)
Chateau Cos d’Estournel
Troisiemes Crus (Third Growths)
Quatriemes Crus (Fourth Growths)
Cinquiemes Crus (Fifth Growths)
Chateau Cos Labory
Then some of the Petite Chateaus and Negociants blended wines.
