(From 2010 Vintage) Château Pichon Baron is the product of very stringent selection from the finest terroirs: a Pauillac Grand Vin classed as a Second Cru in the 1855 ranking system. Its great vintages are wines with an exceptionally long finish, displaying truly regal power and characteristically noble finesse and elegance. Designed for connoisseurs and collectors of fine wines, Château Pichon Baron is a wine to be enjoyed in moments when pleasure is paramount, such as a meal shared with close friends and family. Tasting provides a complex and potent sensory experience: power, structure, depth, notes of ripe black fruit, purity and integrity. Château Pichon Baron can be cellared for over 40 years, but will already be a pleasure to drink within 5 to 7 years.
DecanterRating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Quite meaty, violety bouquet, shows elegance and class. Some sophistication on palate, smooth and ripe and very Pauillac. Good length, fine wine. Drink 2008-17. (17.25 points)
