Jacques de Pichon Longueville was the first President of the Bordeaux Parliament and came to own this property  via a dowry on his marriage to Thérèse, daughter of the owner. Baron Joseph de Pichon Longueville subsequently devided the estate on his deathbed between his sons (who formed Pichon Baron) and his daughters (Pichon Lalande). The family sold Pichon Baron in 1933, but it was when it was sold to the insurance group AXA that Pichon Baron's modern period began. Since 1993 Pichon Baron and all AXA wine estates hvae been managed by Englishman Christian Seely.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

"The 2003 Pichon-Baron has one of the better aromatics this vintage compared to its peers, featuring mulberry and cranberry fruit, orange peel, leather and a touch of star anise. The palate is medium-bodied with furry tannins and lower acidity than the 2002, yet more freshness than in many Left Bank wines. It shows commendable depth and volume, offering attractive tarry, lightly spiced black fruit toward a sinewy finish that shows more energy than you would expect given the infamous heat of that summer." Neal Martin

This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
