Description :

A stylish, elegant, more restrained style of Pichon Baron, with less obvious new oak than usual, this deep ruby/purple-colored wine offers a pure black currant-scented nose with subtle aromas of coffee and smoky toasty oak. In the mouth, the wine displays less weight and muscle than the 1996

Château Pichon Baron

Château Pichon Baron Grand Cru Classé Pauillac  

Today Pichon Baron is managed by Christian Seely, Jean-Michel Cazes having retired from this role in 2000. By this point, the reputation of Pichon-Baron had already been restored, with a string of admirable wines produced particularly during the latter years of the preceding decade. A newly equipped chai completed in 1991, a new bottling line and new practices in the cellars were the cornerstone of the improvements, although the march onwards did not stop there.

The vineyards at Pichon-Baron cover 73 hectares of typical gravel, and are planted with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

The fruit destemmed before fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 28°C to 30°C. Malolactic occurs in vat, after which the wine is transferred into French oak barrels (some may undergo malolactic here) for up to 18 months, using 70% new and 30% one-year old, with racking every 3 months.

The grand vin is Chateau Longueville au Baron de Pichon-Longueville, Pichon-Baron to you and me, with a typical production of 24 000 cases. The second wine is Les Tourelles de Longueville, introduced with the 1986 vintage, of which 12 000 cases are typically produced.

The style of the Pichon-Baron is one of contrast to sibling Pichon-Lalande, which has enjoyed a very strong following for many years because of is sensual, seductive nature. Baron, on clawing back the quality necessary to rival Lalande, has demonstrated a more masculine, structured, reserved although not quite reticent style of wine more akin to Latour than Lalande, and no doubt this is in part due to the significant proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, more than can be found in the sister wine.

Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 90 points
"A stylish, elegant, more restrained style of Pichon Baron, with less obvious new oak than usual, this deep ruby/purple-colored wine offers a pure black currant-scented nose with subtle aromas of coffee and smoky toasty oak. In the mouth, the wine displays less weight and muscle than the 1996, but it offers suave, elegant, rich fruit presented in a medium to full-bodied, surprisingly lush style. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2016." (1997)

Wine Spectator : 90 points
"Blackberry, with violet and currant undertones. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. A little tight still. Give it some time. This is layered and rich. Classy. A little better than I remember. Best after 2008." (2008)
