Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

The rich land of Pichon Longueville tells the story of the estate’s history, which began in 1688-1689. Virginie de Pichon Longueville, Countess de Lalande, inherited three-fifths of the family estate in 1850, which still bears her name to this day.

In late 2006, champagne producer Louis Roederer acquired the property. This family business, headed up by Frédéric Rouzaud, aimed to produce wines that went beyond pleasure and would provoke emotions and contain perfect balance, spirit, and glorious beauty. Constantly searching for perfection, Louis Roederer committed himself publicly to the world of culture and art. His various partnerships with arts institutions led to him being awarded the title of “Grand Mécène de la culture” in 2010.

So when Bordeaux birthed the idea of a center for wine culture, it was natural that Frederic Rouzaud should come on board with his Bordeaux estate, Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, supporting the construction of this key venue for sharing and discovery dedicated to the art of wine and its civilisations.
