The last time I visited Pauillac was to be at the end of a Tour de France time trial stage. The town was packed with visitors and the whole entourage of the world’s biggest cycle race.

Last week I returned. The town was fairly sleepy as befitted a warm August day. A few restaurants were busy for lunch. A Viking River Cruises vessel was tied up at the landing stage, its voyagers no doubt enjoying a trip to one of the various wineries nearby.

Pauillac, population about 5,500, is close to many of the most important wine growing areas in the Médoc. The train ride from Bordeax takes you past several Chateaux de very nice and no doubt very expensive as well.

Some houses have wine tasting facilities in town.

Here are some pictures.
