Découvrez les vins de l'appellation Pauillac
This Bordeaux appellation was truly born under the ideal weather and in the right soil, which is why it can give us some of the best wines available. With its 1,200 hectares of vineyard and an output of 54,000 hectoliters of red wine, the Pauillac AOC is definitely worthy of its terroir and history (which started around the 17th and 18th century, when the many lords and parliament officials of the region were developing the wine trade).
Current capital of the Médoc wine region, the Pauillac port town gave its name to the appellation located between Saint-Estèphe and Saint-Julien. The Pauillac AOC, officially born in 1936, can boast having three of its most prestigious châteaux among the 5 first Grands Crus of the official 1855 Classification: Mouton-Rothschild, Lafite-Rothschild and Latour. Pauillac produces 18 classified crus in total, which represent 85% of its entire production.
Sitting on top of a hill and planted in a soil made of gravel and limestone (which forces the grapevine to dig deep to find their nutrients), the vineyard is a mix of mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, with a few grapevines of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even less grapevines of Petit Verdot and Malbec. Keep in mind that there are no existing rules regarding the composition of the vineyard, so this was not done by design.
