Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Pauillac  Red Bordeaux


2011: dark rubycolour, with a bouquet of prunes and redcurrant; on the palate blackcurrant, blackberries, hints of fresh plums with an attached earthiness and a restrained spiciness; with strong acidity and tannins but enough fruit to counterbalance them.   The finish in about 30 seconds.  It might gain with age.  Drink - 2024.  March 2019.  3.25
