The product of a cooler vintage, there is an austerity to its nature that will please lovers of old school styled Bordeaux. Cassis, cedar and tobacco with a fine tannic structure.

Chateau Pichon Baron and Chateau Pichon Lalande started out life together. At their inception, they were originally part of the same Pauillac vineyard. The chateau and vineyard of Pichon Baron acquired its name like many properties of the day, through marriage. This happened when Therese, daughter of the founder, received the estate as a dowry when she married Jacques de Pichon Longueville, the first President of the Bordeaux Parliament. This began the creation of what we now know of as Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron. Pichon Baron produces rich, full bodied, spicy, concentrated, tannic and elegant Bordeaux wines., with a balance between power and refinement. The wines offer unique character and style.

The 73 hectare vineyard of Chateau Pichon Baron is planted to 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.
