CHATEAU PICHON BARON - PAUILLAC

CHATEAU PICHON BARON - Pauillac - Bordeaux, France

With its deep, dense and lively robe, Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron develops fresh, complex, fine and delicate fragrances of black fruit (blackberry), with subtle notes of sweet spices. Full-bodied on the palate, it is powerful and rich, offering tannins that combine concentration, subtlety, precision and mellowness. The finish is fleshy and reveals sublime length. This wine reveals substance and displays amplitude, balance and an important fruitiness.

VINEYARD

Château Pichon Baron is located on the Pauillac appellation, outstanding AOC of the Médoc. The Pichon Baron estate, overlooking the Latour vineyard, has a terroir that can produce the most remarkable wines; the estate has striven to do so with constancy and excellence in line with this vineyard's early history. Its old vines produce in small quantities but are of supreme quality.

The great terroir comprising the 30-hectare plateau of Pichon Baron (one of the estate's historic plots which was already in use when the wine was first produced in 1694) is devoted entirely to production of the Grand Vin and now represents the major part of the blend. The estate is owned by AXA Millésimes Group and run by Christian Seely, the estate's Managing Director since 2000, supported by Daniel LLose, Technical Director for all the estates owned by AXA Millésimes, since 1987.
