In 2022 Pauillac “fared very well indeed” (Drinks Business) and there’s great praise for this 2ème Cru Classé: "real pedigree and sophistication here, this is a magnificent Pichon-Baron" (Vinous). Concentrated and precise, one for the cellar.

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron is one of the most respected properties of Bordeaux's Left Bank, a Deuxième Cru Classé, facing Château Latour. It was founded in 1694, when Therèse Desmezures de Rauzan, daughter of a wealthy and influential wine merchant, married Baron Jacques Pichon de Longueville. The land was part of her dowry. In 1850 it was split in two – Pichon Baron and Pichon Comtesse. The beautiful château dates back to 1851. In 1987 it was purchased by AXA Millesime. Unsurprisingly, with such deep pockets, much investment has been poured into the vineyards and to the cellar. Dense planting in the vineyard, meticulous care, it all adds up to magnificence in the wine. Intense cassis, cherry and graphite, and matured in 70% new oak.

"More than anything else, the 2022 impresses with its precision and magnificent balance" Antonio Galloni
