Pauillac Wine

Pauillac

Pauillac is a Bordeaux appellation created in 1936,although there has been viticulture here for centuries,for red wines from the commune of that name plus a few clearly defined plots outside it.This is located on the east side of the  Medoc peninsular about 25 miles north of the City of Bordeaux.. Cabernet Sauvignon is the grape variety that dominates the wines here. Though it encompasses only 1200 ha, Pauillac boasts 18 of the classed growths of the 1855 classification including three of the five First Growths of the Medoc. These are Lafite, Latour, and Mouton-Rothschild.

  • She probably didn't buy it in '78 if it was a '78 vintage since it wouldn't be released until a couple of years later. No chance of her digging up a receipt? Keeping those things is what people who collect and may want to sell later do.Still think you'll get the best mileage out of it by gifting to the right person, or a dinner. Too bad you don'...

  • I agree.  You are insulting your father by selling that bottle, unless you don't drink wine at all.  Have some friends over and make it the hit of the tasting party. Read More

  • Drink it. Unless you can prove beyond doubt it was cellared that for the last 40 years in a temperature and humidty controlled environment it won't fetch much in the open market. Personally I'd be kinda po'd if I saved a wine for my kid and when I gave it to him he tried to flip it. C'est la vie.http://www.winebid.com is a good place to start. Read More
