The Pauillac wine region - selling wine from Pauillac

Pauillac: A world famous wine village

Pauillac, a place of international renown, enjoys an excellent reputation for its first-class wines. Here thrive some of the most powerful drops in the entire Médoc and even in the entire Bordelais.

The Premier Crus of Pauillac

The crowning glory of the Médoc: Premier Crus from Pauillac

The prestigious AOC Pauillac is home to three of the Médoc's five First Growths, also known as Premier Crus. These three wineries are world-renowned: Châteaux Lafite-Rothschild, Latour and Mouton-Rothschild. But that is not all.

Variety of awards

More than just Premier Crus

Pauillac has much more to offer than its famous Premier Crus. There are also two Deuxièmes Grands Crus Classés, one Quatrième Grand Cru Classé and no less than twelve Cinquièmes Grands Crus Classés. The variety of excellent wines from Pauillac is impressive.

The secret of Pauillac wines

The special characteristics of Pauillac wines

The wines from Pauillac are characterized in particular by their high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon. This gives them exceptional longevity, but also requires several years of aging. Ideally, a Pauillac wine should only be opened after five years in order to develop its full potential. Although it can also be enjoyed earlier, it is this period of maturation that promises the greatest pleasure.

The grape varieties of Pauillac

Variety of authorized grape varieties

In addition to Cabernet Sauvignon, other grape varieties are also permitted for viticulture in Pauillac. These include Cabernet Franc, Carménère, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. The combination of these grape varieties contributes to the fascinating variety of flavors of the wines from Pauillac.

The Grand Vin of Château Latour

The hallmark of Pauillac: Château Latour

Along the Rue départementale 2, the vineyards of Château Latour extend, right next to the Clos of Léoville-Las-Cases. The Grand Vin of Château Latour stands for powerful, tannic and concentrated Bordeaux wines. In terms of longevity, it is unparalleled.

The unique soil of Pauillac

The secrets of the Pauillac terroir

The secret of the exceptional wines of Pauillac lies not only in the meticulous work of the winemakers, but also in the unique soil. On the first plateau of Pauillac, the characteristic gravel is mixed with a considerable amount of clay in the subsoil, which makes the wines particularly long-lived.

Fineness at Château Lafite

Elegance in the heart of Pauillac: Château Lafite

To the north of Pauillac, at Château Lafite, limestone runs through the gravelly soils, making the wines finer and more elegant. The distance to the Gironde is greater here, which also influences the character of the wines.
