Château Pichon Baron
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. In 1694 the Pichon Longueville estate was founded and it wasn't until 1850 that the property was divided in two: Pichon Baron estate and Pichon Comtesse.
The château, inspired by Renaissance architecture, is an imposing and elegant castle in the vines. Our Grand Vin, classified as a Second Great Growth (Deuxième Grand Cru Classé) in 1855, is made with grapes from the oldest vines on the estate's historic plots.
The Pichon Baron estate comprises 73 hectares of high quality gravelly soil that sparingly nourishes the vines, whose average age is 35 years.
The estate is actively committed to protecting the environment to safeguard this exceptional legacy for future generations. The Pichon Baron team is dedicated to producing consistently exceptional wines that are faithful to the spirit of this great terroir. A very strict selection from the older vines on the noblest soils is dedicated to the production of Château Pichon Baron, the Grand Vin of the property, of which the number of bottles is limited in order to produce only the best.
Château Pichon Baron welcomes you for tours of the majestic estate and vineyards, guided wine tastings and the opportunity of taking part in a unique vertical tasting of the Grand Vin Château Pichon Baron.
