Lying 15 kilometres (9 mi) northwest of the city of Bordeaux, the village is best known as one of the six appellations of the great wine-growing regions of the Médoc. In a region where a mere 20 metres (70 ft) can be the difference between a great wine and an average one, its distance from the beneficial effect of the Garonne means that its wines are not as highly rated as those of the other appellations. Nonetheless it is home to many vineyards whose blends of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc can age over a long period.
