The Pichon Longueville estate dates back to 1688. In 1850, Virginie de Pichon Longueville, Countess de Lalande, and her two sisters inherited three-fifths of the vineyard from their father. Classified as a 2nd Growth Grand Cru Classé in 1855.
The choice to use a higher percentage of Merlot than average is a partial explanation for this wine’s personality. Marked by elegance, balance, and finesse, the estate has an international reputation as a “Super Second” Growth.
