Pauillac has been a French red wine with an Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée since 1936. Of course, the terroir has been world-renowned for even longer, in particular thanks to the vineyard's three Premiers Grands Crus Classés: Château Lafite-Rothschild, Château Latour and Château Mouton-Rothschild. The 18 Grands Crus Classés of Pauillac present in the appellation, according to the classification of 1855, moreover represent 85% of the production of the vineyard and also include real references such as Château Pontet-Canet, Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste or Château Lynch-Bages.Pauillac wine is produced in the Médoc in the Bordeaux vineyards. Its vines meander over 1,200 hectares and produce approximately 54,000 hl of wine per year. Between Saint Estèphe and Saint Julien, Pauillac lives up to its terroir with 18 Pauillac classified wines, three of which are Premier Grands Crus, Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Latour, Château Mouton Rothschild. Depending on the vintage, the grape variety, and other criteria linked to each winemaker, the grapes are destemmed and then macerated in vats for a period of 15 to 30 days. Then, the juice and the must are separated and then comes the time of ageing, from 6 to 24 months, in oak barrels for the grands crus in particular. With a dominant Cabernet Sauvignon in its blends, the wine of Pauillac resembles its winegrowers, robust, complex and nuanced
