A brief history
Situated in a vast appellation whose soils are of varying compositions, Haut-Maurac occupies a privileged spot on the gravelly ridges of St-Yzans-de-Médoc. Himself a wine-lover, Decelles makes wines that please him. Haut-Maurac, regardless of vintage, offers up typical Médocain aromatics, a muscular but balanced palate, with tannins that are surprisingly refined for a wine from the peninsula. Medoc wine-lovers—as well as those who’ve avoided the appellation—owe it to themselves to try Haut-Maurac.
