Enjoy a Pauillac, this is a journey into the mysterious flavors ...

If the wines of Pauillac are exported as well around the world, it is because they leave at every meeting, a little more complexity, without revealing the secret marriage of their delicacy and strength.
Each sip is a new adventure for the senses and sometimes the winelover succumbs to the sap thin and distinguished, sometimes the power bodied tannins.

With a beautiful ruby velvet dress with hints of amber by the time the wine from Bordeaux takes patience and reveals only gradually temperament, delicious and complex bouquet.
Land that gave birth to many Grands Crus Classés in 1855, the Pauillac appellation is a dream destination for all lovers of great wines.
