About Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron
In Paulliac, just west of First Growth Chateau Latour, lies Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron. Affectionately known as Pichon Baron, this second growth may not measure up to its neighbor in the cellar, but it takes the cake for beauty and charm.

Inky purple. Smoky aromas of dark berries, coffee and cocoa, with a peppery topnote; strong element of torrefaction. At once chewy and a bit tart on the palate, offering spicy redcurrant and ripe blackberry flavors along with strong suggestions of mocha and coffee. The broad finish features slightly chewy tannins. I'd have liked a bit more definition here, but it's probably just a matter of time. Cellar this for five years and see where it's headed.
