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.

($165-$225) Impressive saturated ruby color. Pure, classic Pauillac aromas of black cherry, bitter chocolate, menthol and flowers. Very intensely flavored, precise and penetrating, with an extremely primary flavor of cassis. Almost magically light on its feet owing to its rather strong acidity. A very young, extremely long wine with great tensile strength. May yet merit a higher score with another six to eight years of bottle aging. 2006 to 2025.
