The Grand Vin Château Pichon Baron 2nd Grand Cru Classé in 1855 comes from the very oldest vines grown on the historic plots of the estate.
This authentic Pauillac offers an amazing sensory experience with its black fruit flavours and spicy hints. Château Pichon Baron shows great elegance, intensity and exceptional length on the palate. It is a wine that improves year after year and can age for over 40 years in the cellar.
Blend – 80% Cabernet-sauvignon; 20% Merlot
Ageing- 80 % from new barrels, 20 % from barrels of one vintage for 18 months
Château Pichon Baron 2014 offers a deep, intense purple colour, almost black. The nose is highly expressive and yields huge aromatic range – black fruits, blueberry, spices – and combines elegance with subtlety. The attack is suave and precise with a pleasing discreetness. On the palate the wine offers a hint of finely integrated oak and is straight, precise and fleshy. The tannins are backed up by nicely mature, flavorsome fruit notes. The finish is distinctive, complex and neat. Overall this is a full, intense tasting experience.
