The History and Significance of Chateau Pichon-Longueville Baron Wines

Pauillac, a Médoc appellation, is situated approximately 40 kilometres north of Bordeaux, on the left bank of the Gironde River. This region boasts quaternary gravel deposits, large pebbles, and sandy soils, which are characteristic of the appellation, creating an ideal winemaking paradise. The composition of the subsoil allows for water retention, nourishing the vine roots, while the undulating relief of the gravel soils ensures excellent drainage.

An Exceptional Terroir

This exceptional terroir benefits from a maritime climate, further enhanced by its proximity to the Gironde estuary. The combination of these factors makes the Pauillac appellation the most prestigious among Bordeaux wines. It provides all the right conditions for producing exceptional wines.

The Pichon Baron Estate

The Pichon Baron estate spans 75 hectares of high-quality gravelly soil. The nutrient-poor and water-scarce nature of this unique soil provides limited nourishment to the vines, which boast an average age of 35 years.

With a strong commitment to environmental protection, the Pichon Baron estate aims to preserve this exceptional legacy for future generations. The dedicated team at Pichon Baron strives to consistently produce exceptional wines that faithfully represent the spirit of the terroir. They carefully select the older vines from the noblest soils to craft Château Pichon Baron, the property's Grand Vin. The limited production ensures only the finest quality is achieved.

Meticulous Vineyard Management

The vineyard at Pichon Baron is meticulously divided into separate plots, with specific care and attention tailored to each plot's unique profile. The vineyard planting is comprised of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot.

Among the estate's historic plots, the "Butte de Pichon Baron" stands out as the terroir's finest land, dedicated entirely to the production of the Grand Vin. This plot, which has been in use since 1694, when the first wine was produced, forms the majority of the blend. Additionally, Pichon Baron produces two-second wines, Les Tourelles de Longueville and Les Griffons de Pichon Baron, sourced from other parcels of the vineyard.
