Chateau Pichon-Longueville-Comtess de Lalande

SECOND-GROWTH 
 
Pierre de Rauzan, who was the manager of Chateau Latour from 1679-93, profited by its example and his position in-order to buy up as much of the neighboring land as he could on his own behalf. This one man laid down the foundations for today what are four second-growths. Ch. Pichon Longueville Lalande, Ch. Pichon Longueville Baron, Ch. Rauzan-Gassies & Ch. Rausan-Segla.
 
His daughter married Jacques de Pichon, Baron de Longueville, from one of the foremost families in Bordeaux. And this single estate was called Pichon-Longueville until it was divided in 1850.
 
One of the curiosities of Pichon is that it is the only classified growth whose vineyards straddle two appellations in any important way. As much as a third of the vineyard lies in St-Julien. At one stage the authorities insisted that the two sections be kept separate which resulted in the confusing of some labels saying AOC. Pauillac and others AOC. St-Julien. Eventually the current owner won the right to call all the wine AOC Pauillac. This Chateau produces a very high quality wine which is in line with those of the First growths.
