A 2nd Classified Growth of 1855 belonging to the elite group of Bordeaux Grands Crus, Château Pichon Baron is one of the greatest estates of the Pauillac appellation, on the left bank of Bordeaux.
A veritable mosaic of terroirs and superbly located near the Gironde estuary, the Pichon Baron vineyard extends over 73 hectares of vines planted in Médoc gravels soils with perfect drainage. The oldest vines of the property are used in the production of this emblematic Pauillac wine.
Produced since the 2012 vintage, Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is the Second Wine of Château Pichon Baron.
A wet winter preceded a spring marked by a homogeneous budburst in the second half of April and then flowering at the end of May. A month of June, with stable weather conditions accelerating the setting of the grapes, gave way to a particularly hot and dry summer. The thunderstorms in August and September saved the vineyard and ensured an optimal ripening of the grapes until the harvest.
