Producer's description

The Chateau Pichon-Longueville Manor was founded in the late 17th century. In 1689 Pierre Desremesres de Rauzan, an influential wine merchant and manager of the prestigious Luturian and Margos manor houses, bought plots of vines close to the estate of Latour to create Enclos Rauzan.
These vines were part of the dowry of his daughter Theresa when she married Baron Jacques Pichon de Longuville in 1694, the year the estate of Pichon Baron was founded. A famous estate with a solid reputation was born. 

 

In 1850 the property was divided into two parts. The section of Baron Raul Pichon de Longuville became the estate of Pichon Baron. The second section, belonging to his three sisters, became Pichon Comtesse.

During the 1855 Universal Exhibition, wine was classified as a second class Grand Cru Classé in accordance with the ranking system requested by Emperor Napoleon III, who wanted to showcase the splendid Bordeaux wines.
In 1933, the Pichon de Longuville family sold the property to the Buteylier family, which for more than 50 years ran Chateau Pichon Baron. 
In 1987, the estate was bought by AXA Millésimes, whose aim is to provide excellent wines from vineyards with a glorious past. In cooperation with the Center of Paris, Pompidou organized an architectural competition, which provided them with new buildings. The complex reconstruction of the fermentation room and basement, as well as the reconstruction of the castle, began in 1988.

Since then, the image of the castle of the XIX century was reflected in the ornamental basin, which majestically stretches before him. And since 2008, its silvery space hides an underground cellar, reminiscent of the "Nautilus" by Jules Verne, overlooking the water and the sky.
