Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

The winery is located in the municipality Pauillac in the same area in Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). A direct neighbor is the famous one Château Latour, It was created in 1850 by the division of the former Château Pichon-Longueville, the second part is opposite and is called Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse (see history there). The full name on the label is "Château Pichon-Longueville au Baron de Pichon-Longueville". The estate is often referred to briefly as "Château Pichon-Baron".

In 1987 it was taken over by the insurance group AXA bought and commissioned to manage Christian Seely. Large investments followed, including the construction of a new fermentation cellar. In the Bordeaux Classification in 1855 the estate received second place (Deuxième Cru Classé).
