The famous Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, "Pichon Longueville" as it is referred to colloquially, comes from the same domain as "Pichon Baron." Beyond their geographical proximity, they are distinguished by their strong personality. Pichon Longueville wine has a soft, fleshy and tender character that can sometimes make it seem to be a more feminine wine. Straddling the Saint-Julien river, Chateau Pichon Longueville vineyards cover an area of 89 hectares, originally just 11 in the Saint-Julien appellation. The other parcels, from Pauillac, are quite diverse and grant the wines their unequivocal complexity and character. The vines take advantage of soil that allow them to reveal their full potential. They are planted on hillsides with gravel and clay from the Garonne. Now owned by Champagne house Louis Roederer, Pichon Longueville remains a noble and prestigious Second Growth.
