The 2010 Château Pichon-Longueville bears the rich nature of Pichon-Longueville soils. Showcasing intense freshness combined with concentrated yet neat tannins, this Pauillac wine -from one of the greatest vintages of the Chateau- holds a remarkable ageing potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Administrator Christian Seeley thinks the 2010 is the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron he has ever made, equaling some of the estateâÇÖs colossal wines from vintages such as 1989 and 1990. It was certainly showing well when I stopped by the chateau in January. Opaque purple, with loads of charcoal, licorice, incense and some exotic Asian spices along with abundant cassis liqueur, blackberry and hints of roasted coffee and spring flowers, it is full-bodied and opulent, with relatively high tannins, but they have sweetened up considerably and seem less aggressive than they did from barrel. The oak is clearly pushed to the background by the wineâÇÖs wealth of fruit, glycerin and full-bodied texture. This sensational Pichon Longueville Baron needs 5-6 years of cellaring, and should keep 30+ years.
