Pauillac is a commune in Gironde department, Aquitaine (southwestern France). On December 1, 1917 the United States Navy established its naval air station here in order to operate seaplanes during WWI. The base closed after the First Armistice at Compiegne. Close to the centre of the town is a marina with moorings for 150 boats. 2300m north of it is a floating platform where Airbus A380 wings and fuselage sections are transferred to barges from sea-going RORO ferries. The parts are manufactured in UK, Germany and Broughton. The barges take these through Bordeaux to Langon's dock and then by road convoy to an assembly plant at Blagnac, Toulouse.
Pauillac has around 3,000 acres (12 km2) of vineyards located in Haut-Médoc - between the villages of Saint-Estephe to the north and Saint-Julien to the south. Pauillac is also producer of 3 of the Bordeaux region's 5 first-growth wines: Chateau Latour, Chateau Mouton Rothschild and Chateau Lafite Rothschild.
Highlights: Gironde Estuary, Chateaux de Medoc
