Very early turned towards the vast estuary of the Gironde, with an important port activity whose first traces date back to Antiquity (bronze port from the second millennium BC), Pauillac has always seen its life intimately intertwined to the history of wine. If this port trade is at the origin of its prosperity, it was not until the 18th century and the abandonment of the privilege of Bordeaux (which had a trade monopoly with England) for Pauillac to be reborn as a wine port.
The town then became the natural outlet for wine production in the surrounding cantons before reaching its peak in the 19th century , in a period of exceptional prosperity for the vineyards.
Its exceptional shape characterizes the Pauillac terroir: the high number and the rolling of its rumps make it a completely unique morphological success. Very favorable conditions there facilitated the dissection of the layer of gravel. These lean Garonne gravels, whose poverty is the very essence of great wealth for a vineyard, benefit from extremely efficient natural drainage.
