Lovely Visit

Located halfway between Bordeaux and the Pointe de Grave, Pauillac lies on the shore of the largest estuary of europe, the Gironde. Undeniable capital of the Medoc with its 18 classified growths, of which 3 are classified first in their category; Chateaux Lafite Rothschild, Latour and Mouton Rothschild. Only a few minutes from the beach side resorts, Pauillac open a magical universe, where culture, historical heritage, gastronomy, social events and leisure activities join together....

We always come visit this place and never boring around in this area and surroundings.

Maritime

Pauillac is also the uncontested queen of maritime activities in Medoc. It owed its wealth and development to those maritime exchanges whose testimony is the XVIIIth century waterfront facade, stretching over more than 1 km.

Wine

For many wine lovers, Pauillac wines embody the quintessential characteristics of a fine Bordeaux wine. Indeed, 3 of the 5 top Premier Cru Classé, Lafite, Mouton-Rothschild, and Latour are from Pauillac.
