Pichon Baron

Pauillac
Grand Cru Classé en 1855
AXA Millésimes
Château Pichon Baron, Second Cru Classé in 1855, is one of the great historic vineyards of Bordeaux.

The great terroir comprising the 30-hectare plateau of Pichon Baron (one of the estate’s historic plots which was already in use when the wine was first produced in 1694) is devoted entirely to production of the Grand Vin and now represents the major part of the blend.

A rigorous selection policy in the vineyard and in the cellars ensures the production of Château Pichon Baron which is the pure expression of our unique terroir. This wine with an exceptionally long finish displays truly regal power and characteristically noble finesse and elegance.

The château was built in 1851. It boasts a superb view over the Gironde estuary and fairytale architecture with slender turrets and a reflecting water pond. Opening the château up to wine lovers from all four corners of the world is one of our priorities. The quality of our events organisation was rewarded by a Golden Trophy at the Best of Wine Tourism Awards 2011.
