WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING

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.The Wine Advocate, 97pts

OUR NOTES

Chateau Pichon Baron is one of the most prestigious Pauillac wines and a majestic property on the Left Bank in the Bordeaux region. Located on the Medoc "Route des Chateaux", this is part of the Second Classified Growth of 1855. With modern infrastructure and a vineyard largely replanted, Château Pichon Baron has reached a peak of excellence that matches the First Great Classified Growths.

With a mosaic of terroirs and ideally located near the Gironde estuary, the Pichon Baron vineyard covers 73 hectares of vines growing in perfectly drained Medoc gravel soils.

To bring out the expression of this exception terroir to give wines with a unique identity and timeless charm, the passion and commitment of the Chateau Pichon Baron technical team under the direction of Christian Seely since 2001 drives them. The extreme precision in parcel selection makes it possible to make blends of great finesse, complexity and incomparable concentration.

The Grand Vin charms the palate with a dense, harmonious structure that continues all the way to the lingering finish. As an exceptional Pauillac, Chateau Pichon Baron is made for cellaring that will reveal all of its complexity and refinement throughout the decades.
