Not yet rated | write a review
The Bordeaux commune of Pauillac is the most prestigious wine commune in the world, home to some of the most famous names in fine wine, such as Lafite, Mouton-Rothschild and Latour.

In Pauillac, Stephen Brook examines the factors that make the commune and its wines so desirable. The land - the way it lies and the soils that comprise it - is assessed, as is the intriguing history of the area which set the scene for the introduction of the 1855 Classification. Pauillac''s viticulture and winemaking are also explained and practical advice is given on visiting the area.

The book then provides in-depth profiles of the Pauillac estates, arranged according to their position in the 1855 Classification. Each profile analyzes the development of the estate and its wines, the aims, attitudes and practices of the owners and a qualitative assessment is given on their current results.

Pauillac concludes with an extensive section of tasting and vintage notes for each estate. Throughout the book, specially commissioned photography by Michael Busselle captures the essence of the place and its people.

From Our Editors

Of the communes that make up the superb Bordeaux wine-growing region of Medoc, Paulliac may well be the most famous. It is, of course, well known for its three first growth wines (Château Lafite-Rotschild, Château Latour and Chateau Mouton Rothschild), but the area is also home to many less familiar vintages that will delight any wine connoisseur with their subtle richness. Paulliac, by Stephen Brook, is a marvellous guide to the region, and it's also full of the lavish photographs of Michael Buselle.
