Château Pichon-Baron in all its glory, March 2011

Château Pichon Longueville Baron (commonly referred to as Pichon Baron) is a winery in the Pauillac appellation of the Bordeaux region of France. Château Pichon Longueville Baron is also the name of the red wine produced by this property. The wine produced here was classified as one of fifteen Deuxièmes Crus (Second Growths) in the original Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855.

The garden is lovely, yes...and I love gardens. But am currently fixating on doors. This would be perfect in yellow, or aqua...or periwinkle. Sweet sweet.

OHEKA Castle in Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island was built by financier and philanthropist Otto Hermann Kahn on a 400-plus-acre plot for an estimated $110 million dollars in today’s currency, according to the OHEKA Web site. This French-style, 109,000-square-foot, 127-room estate is the second-largest private residence in America. During the roaring ’20s, Kahn used the chateau as a summer home where he hosted lavish parties with royalty, heads of state and Hollywood stars.
