CHATEAU PICHON LONGUEVILLE BARON

Commonly referred to as Pichon Baron, this property began life as part of the same estate as Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, but was split apart in 1850 when the then owner, 90-year-old Baron Joseph de Pichon-Longueville died and bequeathed the property equally between his five children, the women receiving Pichon Lalande and the men what would become Pichon Baron.

It remained in family hands right through to 1933, but following a difficult period through the 1960s and 70s, it was purchased by the AXA insurance group who, with the resources at their disposal, immediately began to turn things around, producing stunning 1989 and 1990 vintages.

The wines have continued to improve to the point where they are now some of the most sought-after in Bordeaux. The hallmarks are a supremely rich spiciness and highly concentrated, tannic fruit that retains its elegance for decades. 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot are planted across the 40-hectare deep gravel vineyard, with some vines planted back in the 1930s.

JERVOIS ROAD WINE CLUB | THE LITTLE BROTHERS OF BORDEAUX

Home to many of the greatest expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in the world, Bordeaux can also at times be synonymous with some of the most eye watering prices in wine. For most wine lovers the likes of Petrus or Lafite are aspirational - bucket list bottles certainly, but likely not ones we are filling our cellars with. Fortunately a lot of the great chateau also produce seconds wine at far more affordable prices. Whether they are from younger vines or fruit that didn't quite make the cut for the grand vin, these wine are still usually of a very high quality and offer an insight into the differing styles of chateaux. Join us in the Jervois Road cellar as we take an in depth look at some of the finest examples of these, sampled from across Bordeaux and from some of the region's most renowned estates.
