There are currently hundreds of wine regions in France that are protected by the AOC label, and each region with this label has meticulous and strict winemaking regulations behind it. Wines from these appellations that meet this set of winemaking rules can be labeled as AOC wines. Both Bordeaux Regional AOC wines and 1855 Grand Cru wines are AOC wines, but they are of different quality and price levels.For example, the familiar Margaux Baiting Blanc is labeled as Bordeaux AOC because the Margaux AOC can only produce red wines. For the 2006 vintage, the label was simplified and no longer says “Bordeaux”, but it is still a Bordeaux AOC wine. The AOC wines from the famous châteaux are not comparable in quality or price to the regular AOC wines. As you can see, the AOC label only indicates that the basic quality of the wine is guaranteed, but it does not indicate the quality of the wine. The AOC label is a guarantee of the basic quality of the wine, but not of the quality of the wine.
