Discount per Quantity
Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron or Chateau Longueville au Baron de Pichon-Longueville (commonly referred to as Pichon Baron) has dates back to 1694, when Jacques de Pichon Baron de Longueville married the daughter of Pierre De Rauzan, the creator of the estate. Their descendants will remain very attached to their property of Pauillac, and it is Raoul de Pichon-Longueville who, in 1851, built the current castle. Classified 2nd growth in 1855, the vineyard of Pichon-Longueville adjoins with Chateau Latour.
The Cabernet-dominated Pichon-Longueville Baron is a more muscular, tannic and full-bodied wine than that of its neighbour across the road, Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande. The grand vin is Chateau Longueville au Baron de Pichon-Longueville. The second wine is Les Tourelles de Longueville, introduced with the 1986 vintage. They require cellaring for at least 10 years.
79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot
