Château Pichon Baron 2017 is very dark, deep and intense in colour. On the nose, the wide aromatic range reveals notes of vanilla and coconut, even a bouquet of black fruits, combined with subtle nuances of spice and cigar box. The attack is full, with smoothness and sweetness. The precise tannins are fine and enveloping. There is a nice, long, opulent finish. Particular attention was paid to maturation, giving this great 2017 wine an elegant structural balance. The typicity is clear; the style of this vintage - in which balance is the main feature - is marked by finesse and distinction.
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Pichon-Longueville Baron is enticingly scented of chocolate-covered cherries, crushed red currants and mulberries with touches of baking spices, potpourri and bay leaves plus a hint of fallen leaves. Sumptuously elegant, refreshing and medium-bodied with gorgeous, expressive, perfumed red fruits and very fine, very firm tannins, it has a persistent, perfumed finish. Its remarkable intensity, freshness and very firm frame suggest a long-lived Pichon Baron, which should cellar gracefully for 30+ years.
Barrel Sample. The increasing quantity of Cabernet in this top wine from Pichon-Longueville shows in the purity of fruit and in the firm, dark tannins. It is dark, dense and concentrated with very fine acidity and a pure line of black currant fruits. Despite its fruitiness, it will certainly age well and long.
This gushes with dark fig and black currant compote flavors backed by lively sweet tobacco and singed alder edges. Very fleshy feel, though there's ample grip to keep this red grounded, echoing with tar and humus accents through the finish. A thumper. Best from 2025 though 2040. 13,500 cases made.
