"Slightly earthy, featuring tobacco, cigar box and dark fruits. Full-bodied, offering super velvety tannins and a long, rich finish. Plenty of subtle things are going on here in the glass, with lots of wonderful fruit underneath. Can't wait on this. Showing beautifully now. Better than ever." WS

Pichon-Longueville is located on beautifully gravelly soil in the southern part of the commune of Pauillac. In 1694, Jacques de Pichon, Baron de Longueville, married the daughter of Pierre de Rauzan, who originally created the property. Their descendants remained deeply involved with making fine wine, and Raoul de Pichon-Longueville built the present chateau in 1851.

The 73 hectare vineyard of Chateau Pichon Baron is planted to 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. However, the Cabernet Franc and the Petit Verdot are reserved exclusively for the second wine.

To produce and vinify the wine of Chateau Pichon Baron, they have 44 tanks in total. 44 vats are stainless steel vats of varying sizes. The vats range in size from 64 hectoliters all the way up to 220 hectoliters. They also have 4 oak tanks which are all 80 hectoliters. The oak vats are always reserved for the Merlot. The size of each fermentation vat corresponds to the specific size and needs of each parcel, allowing for very precise wine making on a plot by plot basis at Chateau Pichon Baron.
