Pauillac: one of the most popular appellations
Pauillac is a commune in the south-west of France, located on the left bank of the Gironde. This commune combines exceptional climatic and geological conditions. Pauillac is a controlled appellation from Médoc, a subdivision of Burgundy vineyards. It has become one of the best-known and most popular appellations in the world, which includes 3 classified Premiers Crus, Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Mouton Rothschild and Château Latour considered as exceptional wines since the 18th century. These wines have become today legendary wines, rare and difficult to find.
The Pauillac appellation also has 18 classified châteaux and it is probably one of the most prestigious of the Médoc. 54,000 hectoliters of wine are produced each year on its 1200 hectares of vineyard. Composed mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes combined with Merlot, Pauillac wines are tannic and spicy in their youth, and develop a unique elegance with age. The aging of its wines is exceptional: they have a great aging potential, from 15 to 25 years, or even more for some grand crus and great vintages.
