The winery is located in the commune of Pauillac in the area of the same name in the Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). A direct neighbour is the famous Château Latour. It was created in 1850 by dividing the former Château Pichon-Longueville, the second part is opposite and is called Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse (see history there). The full name given on the label is "Château Pichon-Longueville au Baron de Pichon-Longueville". The estate is also often referred to briefly as "Château Pichon-Baron". In 1987, it was bought by the AXA insurance group and Christian Seely was put in charge. Large investments followed, including the construction of a new fermentation cellar. In the Bordeaux classification of 1855, the estate was awarded second place (Deuxième Cru Classé). The vineyards cover 70 hectares with the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon (70%), Merlot (25%) and Cabernet Franc (5%). The extremely long-lived red wine is aged for 15 to 18 months in 70% new barriques. It is counted among the so-called "Super Seconds", which means it would earn the "Premier Cru Classé". The second wine is called "Les Tourelles de Longueville".
