About Pauillac


Pauillac is a commune in the Gironde department of Aquitaine, France; its population is about 5,000. Though the town and its surrounding acreage are small, as home to Châteaux Lafite Rothschild, Latour and Mouton Rothschild and other illustrious appellations, Pauillac is considered the undisputed capital of the Médoc wine region. River cruise visitors can explore the marina, see the Lafayette monument (commemorating the departure of the Marquis for the New World) or just sample the area’s excellent wines.
