Château Pichon Comtesse
Château Pichon Comtesse

Brand Overview

The Médoc stretches north of Bordeaux, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gironde Estuary. A remarkable region with particularly poor soils, consisting of gravel rises on clay subsoil. These light, well-drained soils, resulting from the slow drop in water levels during the Quaternary period, provide ideal conditions for the vines to reveal the outstanding quality of the terroir, under the protective influence of a highly favorable microclimate.

Often referred to as a “Super Second,” Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande has been part of the original Bordeaux Grands Crus Classification of 1855.

In 2007, Maison Louis Roederer acquired the property from May Eliane de Lencquesaing, who inherited the estate in 1978 and ran it with great devotion for 30 years.

With excellence and elegance at the forefront of its winemaking principles, Château Pichon Comtesse’s wines are spectacular characterizations of the Pauillac terroir. From its flagship “grand vin” Pichon Comtesse to the approachable yet charming second wine Réserve, Pichon Comtesse wines represent centuries of tradition, passion, and stewardship of the land.
