Producer Note
The history of the Pichon family goes back to the Middle Ages. Since then, numerous family members have played a role in the history of Bordeaux. In 1964, Jacques de Pichon, Baron de Longueville, married the daughter of Pierre de Rauzan, who created the estate. Their descendants were thereafter much involved with the property of Pauillac. Raoul de Pichon-Longueville built the current Château in 1851. His family lived there until 1933. In 1987, AXA-Millésimes acquired the estate. The new owners completely restored the Château and installed ultramodern wine making equipment. Vineyard
Double Guyot trained vines. Pruning, desuckering, topping and crop thining to promote healthy growth. Environmentally certified. Winemaking
Manual sorting before and after destemming. Traditional vinification in thermoregulated stainless steel vats. Maceration lasts 15 days. First press is racked and marc is pressed. 30% undergoes malolactic fermentation in oak barrels. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 15 months (80% new and 20% one-year old) with racking every three months. Tasting Note
A lovely, lightly perfumed nose with the appealing fruit aromas of blackcurrant and notes of cedar, minerally gravel and violets. The fruit in the mouth is forward and surprisingly powerful. Harmonious and balanced in the midpalate with a good grip and great length. Serving Suggestion
At room temperature with roast meats.
