Château Pichon Baron is one of the most prestigious Pauillac wines and a majestic property on the Left Bank in the Bordeaux region. Located on the Médoc "Route des Chateaux" (the Castle Road), this Second Classified Growth of 1855 leaves no one indifferent. The estate’s imposing structure is reflected with grandeur and brilliance in the water mirror that rests just in front of it, and under this water mirror is the château’s underground cellar. "Pichon Baron" underwent major modernization once it entered under the control of the AXA Group at the end of the 1980s. With modern infrastructure and a vineyard largely replanted, Château Pichon Baron has reached a peak of excellence that matches the First Great Classified Growths.
With a mosaic of terroirs and ideally located near the Gironde estuary, the Pichon Baron vineyard covers 73 hectares of vines growing in perfectly drained Médoc gravel soils.
To bring out the expression of this exception terroir to give wines with a unique identity and timeless charm, the passion and commitment of the Château Pichon Baron technical team under the direction of Christian Seely since 2001 drives them. The extreme precision in parcel selection makes it possible to make blends of great finesse, complexity and incomparable concentration.
With 3 iconic labels, Château Pichon Baron produces different expressions of the great terroir of Pauillac, an appellation recognized for some of the greatest wines in the world. Château Pichon Baron is the estate’s first wine produced in limited quantities, and it comes from a rigorous selection of the oldest vines on the estate. With immense class, this vintage displays a purity and intensity that only the greatest Pauillac wines have. It charms the palate with a dense, harmonious structure that continues all the way to the lingering finish. As an exceptional Pauillac, Château Pichon Baron is made for cellaring that will reveal all of its complexity and refinement throughout the decades. Flawless and expressive, Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is the estate’s second wine with a personality in its own right, which is blended from parcels near the Gironde estuary. Les Tourelles de Longueville, named after the towers that adorn the château, is from vineyard plots planted with Merlot to give a fresh and supple expression of the terroir.
