Château Pichon Baron
Located south of Pauillac denomination, Château Pichon Baron, classified as a 2nd Grand Cru Classé in 1855 , is open all along the year for private tours and tasting.
The estate was founded in the late 17th Century when Pierre Desmezures de Rauzan, an influential wine merchant and steward of the prestigious Latour and Margaux estates, bought plots of vines in Pauillac to create Enclos Rauzan.
These vines were part of his daughter Thérèse’s dowry when she married Baron Jacques Pichon de Longueville in 1694, the year in which the Pichon Longueville estate was founded. It remained in the same family for generations. In 1850 the property was divided in two. Baron Raoul Pichon de Longueville’s section became the Pichon Baron estate. The second section, belonging to his three sisters, became Pichon Comtesse.
Baron Raoul was proud of his prestigious property, and in 1851 he commissioned the imposing château inspired by Renaissance architecture that we know today.
The Pichon Baron estate comprises 73 hectares of high quality gravelly soil. Low in nutrients and with little excess water, this unique soil sparingly nourishes the vines, whose average age is 35 years.
Our Grand Vin Château Pichon Baron, classified as a 2nd Grand Cru Classé in 1855, is made with a very strict selection from the older vines on the noblest soils.
