What is Pichon?

Pichon-Baron is a famous Bordeaux wine estate renowned for its sensually seductive wines from great vintages. Classified as 2nd Growth under 1855’s classification system, its wines often outshone first-growth neighbours such as Lafite Rothschild in exceptional years.

Pichon property can be found on the left bank of Gironde river just south of Margaux in Pauillac. Established by Pierre de Rauzan in the 17th century by purchasing land near Latour and planting vines on it, both estates bear his name as tribute for his efforts and are widely considered pioneers of modern Bordeaux viticulture.

After his death in 1850, his estate was divided between two sons and three daughters – his eldest inherited what would later become Pichon Longueville Baron while the rest would become Pichon Comtesse de Lalande.

At first the estate remained within the family until 1933 when it was sold to the Bouteiller family who claimed they were direct descendants of Napoleon III’s wine steward, as claimed by their family name. From there until mid 1980s when Axa Millesimes (now owned by Rouzaud family – who are also owners of Louis Roederer Champagne).

Under May Eliane de Lencquesaing’s guidance, Pichon-Baron achieved second growth status in 1855’s classification system and established itself as a Super Second. She also created Les Griffons de Pichon-Baron, using some of the oldest vines on the estate for an additional six month of aging.

Pichon-Baron is currently owned by the family that also runs Louis Roederer Champagne and managed by General Manager and winemaker Nicolas Glumineau. They produce not only Grand Vin but also less costly yet excellent second wines such as Les Griffons or Pichon-Lalande – in addition to producing Les Griffons as part of a Grand Vin production run by this team.

Pichon may be famed as an extravagant and seductive wine, yet its accessibility may surprise. Pichon stands out with its vibrant, pure fruit flavours and delicate mineral finish which brings out its complex tannins – something which appeals both to heart and mind alike.
