About: Bordeaux Left Bank Pauillac Bordeaux Pau wines are rich and concentrated, full-bodied reds with grippy tannins, and characteristic notes of cassis, cedar and cigar box spice. The best examples come from blends with a base of high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon and are often considered the quintessential example of a Bordeaux wine. Pauillac, in Bordeaux's Left Bank Médoc region, boasts well-draining gravel soils, which in turn translates to higher quality wines; and those from Pauillac age extremely well. Three of the five first-growths from the 1855 classification of the Médoc are situated in Pau aC Lafite, Latour, and Mouton-Rothschild.
