Decanter: Rich, full and very ripe with the Baron vigour and fine tannins bringing lift and depth. A bit massive at the moment it but will firm up and show complexity with age. 93 Points

Ratings
Wine Spectator: Really packed, with very energetic blackberry, black currant and plum fruit, pushed by anise and sweet spice and rumbling through the broad, iron-edged finish. Shows lots of heft, but the impression is fresh, and this is built for the long haul. Impressive. 93 - 96 Points
Awards
Jancis Robinson: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot. Dark crimson. Much less immediately attractive on the nose than Pichon Lalande. But with real tension and follow through on the palate. Very Pauillac indeed! Muscular. Drink 2025-2045 17.5++
Vineyard Notes
South of the appellation, between Pauillac and Saint-Julien, is this beautiful vineyard of 73 hectares. Adjoining the great Château Latour, the 2nd Classified Pichon Longueville Baron enjoys a terroir 1er Cru, with its deep gravel dating from the Quaternary period. Cabernet Sauvignon occupies 62% of the vine, associated with merlot (32%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and Petit Verdot (2%).
Production Notes
Led by winemaker Eric Boissenot, Pichon Baron wine asserts itself while intensity, with a race, precision and a unique velvety. It differs from its neighbor Pichon Longueville Comtesse - with whom he formed a single thought until 1850 - for a stronger profile.
Other Notes
Pichon-Longueville is located on beautifully gravelly soil in the southern part of the commune of Pauillac. In 1694, Jacques de Pichon, Baron de Longueville, married the daughter of Pierre de Rauzan, who originally created the property. Their descendants remained deeply involved with making fine wine, and Raoul de Pichon-Longueville built the present chateau in 1851. In 1988, following an architectural competition organized by the Centre Georges Pompidou, the château and wine cellar were entirely renovated. A spectacular new winemaking facility enables an exquisite wine to be made under ideal conditions.
