Our Grand Vin Château Pichon Baron 2nd 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.
The 2013 Pichon-Baron has a light, scorched earth and graphite bouquet that clearly does not possess the fruit intensity of other vintages, though there is no sign of any greenness. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, moderate depth, clean lines and a touch of mineralité popping up on the finish. A delightful Pichon-Baron, and certainly one of the better wines of the vintage. Tasted at the Pichon-Baron vertical at the château.[89 Points, Neal Martin – January 2019, vinous.com]
