A Mosaic of Vineyards
Pichon Baron’s vineyard is planted as follows: 65% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, and is meticulously divided into separate plots. Each plot receives specific care and attention adapted to its particular profile.
The terroir’s best land – the “Butte de Pichon Baron” – is devoted entirely to the production of the Grand Vin, making up the majority of the blend. It is among the estate’s historic plots; it was already in use in 1694, when the wine was first produced.
Pichon Baron also produces two second wines, from other parcels of its vineyard: Les Tourelles de Longueville and Les Griffons de Pichon Baron.
