Map showing Chateau Longueville in 1886


I am working on my post about the Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron tasting organized by Panos Kakaviatos (Wine Chronicles).  To stay on subject here is a 19th century map showing the location of the estate.  If you follow the route south from Pauillac you will encounter Chateau Latour followed by Chateau Longueville.  By this date both Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron and Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande were in existence.  It was most likely due to space that they were combined into a single entry on the map.   A classified list of the estates appears at the bottom of the sheet which contains this map.   Under the “2mes CRUS” list is Pichon-Longueville owned by Baron de Pichon and Pichon-Lalande owned by Comtesse de Lalande.
