Pauillac is maybe the best appellation of Bordeaux with three premiers grands crus classés (1st great growth) out of 5. Pauillac has 18 grands crus classés in total! The great châteaux of Pauillac are Château Lafite, Château Latour and Château Mouton-Rothschild.

Pauillac wines generally have a lot of body, tannic and acid when they are young; they have an opulent bouquet with aromas of blackcurrant and cedar when they age.
