Winemaker Notes
Named after the turrets that embellish the château, our wine Les Tourelles de Longueville, embodies the charm of the estate.The grapes that are used to blend the wine come essentially from the Sainte Anne plot, planted mainly to merlot, giving to it a distinctive personality. Les Tourelles de Longueville is an invitation to enter a world of flavor, charm, roundness and sensual delight.This wine provides an introduction to the spirit of Pichon Baron and can be enjoyed young or aged in the cellar for 15 years or more.

Blend: 66% Merlot, 20% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot

Aromas of currants, walnuts and blackberries follow through to a full-bodied palate with fine, chewy tannins and a linear finish. Shows polish and beautiful length. Lovely second wine. Try after 2025.
Rated 94 Points James Suckling

One of the two second wines from this estate, this is dominated by Merlot, giving a rounded, jammy character that is comfortably filled out with generous tannins. With chocolate and spice flavors, the wine is developing well. Drink from 2025.
