  • 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 mid-palate with a good grip and great length. Beautiful concentration and depth of cedar and opulent fruit flavours, powerful yet elegant with enormous potential. A classic. 
The 73-hectare estate features high quality gravelly soil, with large pebbles and sand, which are typical of the appellation and provide an ideal viticulture terroir. The subsoil composition allows the retention of water to feed the roots, while the undulating relief of the gravel soils is ideal for drainage. Low in nutrients and with little excess water, this unique soil sparingly nourishes the vines, whose average age is 30 years. The maritime climate, with its proximity to the Gironde estuary, has a tempering effect on the warm summers. The estate is actively committed to protecting the environment. The vineyard is planted as follows: 62% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, and is meticulously divided into separate plots. Each plot receives specific care and attention adapted to its particular profile. The vines are Double Guyot trained with pruning, desuckering, topping and crop thinning taking place to promote healthy vines.

Winery

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 and 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. The vineyard is cultivated sustainably and holds the HVE Level 3 certification. Their wines are a classic, elegant expression of Pauillac.
