Chateau Pichon-Longueville Baron 2eme Cru Classe Pauillac 2011

Beautiful concentration and depth of cedar and
opulent fruit flavours, powerful yet elegant with
enormous potential. A classic.


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
The vines are Double Guyot trained with pruning, desuckering, topping and crop
thinning taking place to promote healthy vines. The vineyard is managed
sustainably.


Winemaking
The grapes were manually sorted before and after being destemmed. Traditional
vinification took place in temperature controlled stainless steel vats, followed by
maceration lasting 15 days. The first press was racked and then the marc was
pressed. 30% of the young wine underwent malolactic fermentation in oak barrels.
The wine was aged in French oak barrels for 15 months, of which 80% were new and
20% were of second passage, 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.
