The Medoc was a tidal flood plain mostly recovered by Dutch engineers, so Medoc is the youngest of the Bordeaux wine producing regions.

This has not stopped Medoc wine rising to high eminence,  giving rise to the world famous Chateau Margeaux and both the world famous Rothschild Chateaux, Chateaux Lafite and Chateaux Mouton.

Trade in Medoc wines from Bordeaux has roots at least as deep as the seas plowed by Phoenician navigators. Here we see a typical Carrack of the 15 th century leading a fleet into the hazardous Gironde estuary.

Chateaux Margeaux, Chateaux Lafite and Chateaux Mouton are well established as representing the most renowned wines and Chateaux in the world.

To rise to such eminence in isolation is not possible and there in is the tale of the Medoc.

The Medoc is bordered to the north by the broad deep water, dangerous currents, shifting sand and mud banks of the navigable Gironde estuary.

Medoc, besides the great chateaux  hosts numerous smaller estates and some very undeveloped pretty villages and a few of  these are our subjects.

Medoc wines 

Very distinguished, the Medoc has pioneered fine wines since at least the 17 th century.

Medoc is sited to the west of Bordeaux, Medoc’s history and development being quite different from the rest of the region.

Most historians agree, following the decimation by barbarians during the dark ages  the wine trade was re stimulated by the English commencing the reign of Eleanor of Aquitaine who married Henry II (Plantagenet) of England.

Gordon Frickers is  honoured by invitation to exhibit in the European Parliament, a one man show of 35 (May 2011) as well as exhibitions in other prestigious venues in Britain and Europe.

Many distinguished people and renowned companies have chosen Frickers paintings as you can discover by reading my illustrated résumée.
