Château Pichon Longueville Baron

Château Pichon-Baron is one of Pauillac’s greatest estates. Nowadays it produces wine of a quality approaching that of its neighbour Château Latour. This second growth in Pauillac has become one of AXA Millésimes star properties since they bought it in 1987.

Pichon-Baron is a masculine, structured, reserved wine, more akin to Latour than to Pichon Comtesse, indeed its style is in total contrast to that of its sibling. No doubt this is in part due to the significant proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. Pichon-Baron, which seems to get better every year, has a deep colour and reveals a strength and concentration which can make the wine seem almost abrasive when young, but which promise splendid times ahead once the wine has reached maturity.
