Pauillac

Home to three of the five Grand Crus from the 1855 Classification (Latour, Lafite and Mouton), Pauillac is the iconic home of excellent Cabernet Sauvignon. Concentrated with notes of cassis, cedar and the aroma of a humidor, these are Bordeaux’ most famously long lived wines. With 3000 acres of vineyards planted on layers of gravel soil, providing good drainage, the best vines are perched on the small hills in the region. Unlike in Margaux, the majority of estate holdings are clustered in large grouping and as such the wines are more terroir driven. Held as the standard for classic Bordeaux, Pauillac wines deliver soft fruit, oak flavors, dryness and subtle substance.

Critical acclaimed Chateau Lynch Bages,  Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande and Chateau Pontet Canet will be representing Pauillac, classical heart of  great Bordeaux wines, during the 2015 BurdiGala Grand Tasting and Gala Dinner.
