Chateau Pichon Longueville de Lalande is ideally situated between the Gironde estuary and the Atlantic Ocean. These two masses of water favour the movement of air, which clears the sky of clouds and reduces rainfall. The region of Pauillac benefits from a microclimate that is relatively dry which helps the concentration of the grapes.  Since the end of the 1970's, the reputation of Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande has acquired the status of a "super second" and a "nearly first", in light of the consistency of its quality. The key word in this success is selection, from the period of the grape harvest to, above all, the preparation of the cuvee.  The wine sees 18-24 days of tank fermentation, 18 months barrel maturation, with 50% new oak and 50% old oak.  Wines are racked every 3 months and the fining is always done with whipped egg whites.  The bottling is carried out at the Chateau at the beginning of June of the second year following the grape harvest.
