Château Pichon Longueville Baron

November 3, 2018 Beverage No Comments Email Email
Château Pichon Baron is one of the great historic vineyards of Bordeaux. The estate was founded in the late 17th Century.

This period was known as the Grand Siècle, or “Great Century”, in reference to Louis XIV’s 1661 accession to the French throne. During the Universal Exhibition of 1855, the wine was classed as a Second Grand Cru Classé according to the ranking system requested by Emperor Napoleon III, who wished to showcase Bordeaux’s great wines.

A rigorous selection policy in the vineyard and in the cellars ensures the production of a Grand Vin, Château Pichon Baron, which is the pure expression of THE UNIQUE TERROIR.

The Grand Vin Château Pichon Baron 2nd Grand Cru Classé in 1855 comes from the very oldest vines grown on the historic plots of the estate. This authentic Pauillac offers an amazing sensory experience with its black fruit flavours and spicy hints. Château Pichon Baron shows great elegance, intensity and exceptional length on the palate. It is a wine that improves year after year and can age for over 40 years in the cellar

Château Pichon Baron 2011

The colour of Château Pichon Baron 2011 is deep garnet with ruby glints. On the nose, there is great aromatic presence with spicy, delicate, chocolatey and lightly toasted notes. There are delicate aromas of fruit: blackberry, black cherry. The attack is fleshy, generous and full-bodied. The rich, silky tannins are beautifully mature. The mouth-watering finish becomes more refined and sweet. This vintage opens up to become more accessible.

Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is the estate’s latest addition. This wine has a pure and direct character. The grapes which make up this wine’s blend come primarily from gravelly plots of land near to the Gironde estuary, a good environment for Cabernet-sauvignon. Les Griffons offers a vigorous and fresh tasting experience, full-bodied and clean, overflowing with energy. It can be laid down in the cellar for over 20 years or enjoyed right away.
This wine offers a dark and intense colour. The nose is fresh, complex and fruity, with particularly pronounced blackberry and blackcurrant aromas, and a subtle, delicate woody character revealing caramel hints. The sensation on the palate is consistent, fleshy and full bodied, with firm, well-structured, powerful tannins. The finish is elegant and precise.
