Pichon Baron, ode to the Cabernet-Sauvignon In 1689, Pierre Desmezures de Rauzan, manager of the prestigious estates of Latour and Margaux, created the Enclos Rauzan. Five years later it became the Pichon Longueville estate. In 1851, Baron Raoul de Pichon Longueville, who had just inherited part of this vineyard created the Pichon Baron estate. Proud of his property, he built in 1851 the majestic Château that we know today, with its two emblematic turrets. His commitment was rewarded in 1855 when the estate was consecrated Second Grand Cru Classé. In 1987, Axa Millésimes bought the estate with the ambition of restoring its former glory. A vast renovation project was then launched, giving rise, among other things, to the famous water mirror that stretches out at the foot of the Château and the underground cellar worthy of the Nautilus. Christian Seely has been at the helm of Axa Millésimes for over 20 years. He has made the pursuit of excellence his guiding principle. His latest achievement: the construction of a modern technical facility and a magnificent tasting area, inaugurated in 2023. The 73 hectares of the Pichon Baron vineyard are spread over very high quality gravelly soil. This unique soil, low in nutrients and without excess water, is perfectly suited for Cabernet Sauvignon.
