Description

The precision and richness of a Pauillac Second Wine

The estate

Château Pichon Baron, Second Grand Cru Classé in 1855, is one of the Grand Cru elite of Pauillac, on Bordeaux’s Left Bank.

The vineyard

A véritable mosaic of terroirs, superbly placed near the Gironde estuary, the Château Pichon Baron vineyard extends over 73 hectares of vines planted on on perfectly drained Médoc gravel soils. The estate’s oldest vines are used to develop this emblematic Pauillac wine.

The wine

Produced since the 2012 vintage, Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is the Château Pichon Baron’s Second Wine.

The vintage

Although the mildness of the winter advanced an early budburst in the vineyard, a cool and rainy spring brought an uneven flowering. Summer was hot and dry, with scattered rains at the end of July-beginning of August, and at the end of September. The harvested grapes had a perfect concentration of sugar, unveiling fine tannins and a low acidity.

Winemaking and ageing

Ageing for 18 months in barrels (60% new, 40% of one wine).

Blend

Merlot (59%)
Cabernet Sauvignon (41%).
