Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron Pauillac 2nd Grand Cru Classe 2019
2019 Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron from Pauillac, 2eme Grand Cru Classe, is a great example of the classic Bordeaux style. It has a deep ruby color and a complex aroma of dark fruits, vanilla, and spice. The palate is rich and full-bodied, with smooth tannins and a long, elegant finish. This 750ml bottle is perfect for pairing with a hearty meal or for aging in your cellar.
As always, it is the Cabernet Sauvignon that sings. It brings an impressive structure to the wine, rich tannins and powerful black fruits. The wine is set for aging. It shows all the power and the open quality of the vintage. Drink from 2027. Roger Voss
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) -
The 2019 Pichon-Longueville Baron will go down as one of this château's great wines of the modern era, along with 2016, 2010 and 1989. Unfurling in the glass with aromas of cassis and plums mingled with notions of cigar wrapper, sweet loamy soil and violets, it's full-bodied, velvety and layered, with superb concentration, lively acids and rich, powdery tannins. Perfumed and resonant, this is a profound young Pauillac that bears more of a resemblance to its neighbor Château Latour than to Pichon Lalande this year. Pichon Baron was one of the great deals of the en primeur campaign, and readers who purchased futures are to be congratulated on their foresight. - Reviewed by William Kelley
