Commentaire Robert Parker Administrator Christian Seeley thinks the 2010 is the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron he has ever made, equaling some of the estate’s colossal wines from vintages such as 1989 and 1990. It was certainly showing well when I stopped by the chateau in January. Opaque purple, with loads of charcoal, licorice, incense and some exotic Asian spices along with abundant cassis liqueur, blackberry and hints of roasted coffee and spring flowers, it is full-bodied and opulent, with relatively high tannins, but they have sweetened up considerably and seem less aggressive than they did from barrel. The oak is clearly pushed to the background by the wine’s wealth of fruit, glycerin and full-bodied texture. This sensational Pichon Longueville Baron needs 5-6 years of cellaring, and should keep 30+ years.
Commentaire De robe sombre, le nez est marqué par les fruits noirs, mûre et cassis, sur un fond d’épices. La bouche est dense, stricte, droite, longue, avec une belle matière tannique, concentrée, la finale de réglisse et de cèdre est superbe. Le vin représente 40% de la production.
