Description
  • Presentation of the winery

Pierre Desmezures, a merchant and farmer from Latour, bought in 1689 vineyards south of Pauillac and near Latour. These vines entered in the dowry of his daughter when she married Jacques Pichon Longueville. The area remains for several generations in the Pichon family. In 1850, new inheritance rules exist, the property is divided into two parts, 2/5 for Pichon Longueville Baron Raoul gives Pichon Baron and 3/5 for girls giving Pichon Comtesse. Baron Raoul therefore builds the castle that we know today. In the same period, the wine is ranked 2nd Grand Cru. In 1933, Jean Bouteiller bought the property to the Pichon family. The new owner maintains the reputation of the wine for decades, but the winery is in trouble in the 1960s and 70s. In 1987, the insurance company Axa bought the castle. The insurance company made significant investments in renovation of the winery. The estate is located in front of Château Latour and Pichon Comtesse, the vineyard is 73 hectares and extends on gravelly soils on basement alios. The vines are 62 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 3 % Cabernet Franc.
