Château Pichon Longueville Baron
This famous estate was founded in the late 17th century and split in 1850 to become Pichon Baron and Pichon Comtesse. The château was built in 1851 and is still one of the most beautiful and imposing in the Médoc.
The 73 hectare estate was bought by AXA in 1987 who have since carried out much renovation, including an imposing underground cellar. The wines generally have a bit more structure than Comtesse across the road, quality has never been better.
