Château Pichon Baron, Second Grand Cru Classé in 1855 in Pauillac, belongs to the elite of Burgundy Grand Crus.
A name among Pauillac wines, Château Pichon Baron oversees a mosaic of terroirs located near the Gironde estuary. Its vineyard stretches across 73 hectares of vines planted on soils of perfectly drained Médoc gravel.
Cabernet Sauvignon (79%)
Elegant and expressive, the nose reveals intense scents of black fruit and spices, smoky tobacco notes and touches of dried flowers.
This wine, with silky tannins, gives an exceptional powerfulness and length on the palate.
Composed of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 80% new, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Pichon-Longueville Baron slips sensuously out of the glass with provocative cherry preserves, baked raspberries and fresh blackcurrants scents, leading to nuances of red roses, charcoal, tilled soil and cardamom plus a waft of forest floor. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant, refreshing and refined, with a compelling line of soft, grainy tannins and lots of perfumed accents, finishing fragrant.
