Pauillac


Pauillac is the capital of the great Médoc wine region and is located on the left bank of the Gironde between Saint-Estephe and Saint-Julien it combines a unique geological and climatic conditions, allowing it to produce some of the World’s most famous and desirable wines.

There are a total of 18 Chateaux’s in Pauillac present in the 1855 classification , with an astonishing three of the five first growths of the 1855 classification, these famous properties produce 85% of its production.

Pauillac overlooking the Gironne has an exceptional terroir perched on ridges of sandy gravel soil which is so poor that the vines extend deeper than other region in the Medoc, finding nutrients deep in a layer of clay and limestone that is considered the true terroir of Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines once again are a reflection of its terroir with predominately Cabernet Sauvignon, assembled with merlot and in a lesser extent Petit Verdot and Malbec.

Pauillac wines are renowned to be robust, rich, dense and profound, with intense tannins, the aging potential of these wines are exceptional. Over the years, the round tannins and aromas open, they lose their aggressiveness to become thin and delicate, while conserving power.
