Médoc - Pauillac
Alcohol 13,0 %
This magnificent 2nd Grand Cru Classé not only has the most beautiful chateau of Médoc but also belongs to the best of Pauillac and can be compared to the Premier Crus Ch. Mouton Rothschild and Ch. Lafite Rothschild. The cru belongs to Axa Millésimes (just like Ch. Petit Village – Pomerol) since the 1980s. Impressive investments have been done in 2007 to expand and improve the cellars and the vinification material which are situated under the pond of the chateau. The terroir at the entrance of Pauillac is partially situated against Ch. Latour. That explains the intensity and concentration which is specific to Ch. Pichon Baron. Christian Seely is the director since 2000 and the consecutive successes have brought the cru to the top of the appellation.
