Description

98/100

Revealing incredible quality and performing better than it did from barrel, the 2009 appears to be the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron since the 1990 and 1989. An amazing opaque blue/purple color is followed by scents of spring flowers, graphite, smoky charcoal, incense, blackberries, blueberries and hints of coffee and chocolate. Incredibly intense, pure and flawlessly constructed with extravagant layers of fruit and richness, this offering has developed beautifully under the management of Christian Seeley. It is a voluptuous, opulent Pichon Longueville Baron that may eclipse anything they have made in the past. This brilliant wine should be at its peak between 2018 and 2045.

The name “Baron” is often added to the domain Pichon de Longueville so as not to confuse it with the domain Pichon Lalande. Linked for years, these areas are now distinct, both in terms of name and style. Rightly classified Second Grand Cru Classé, Château Pichon Baron is one of the best crus of the Médoc, it produces a wine for laying down combining power, richness and finesse.
