Chateau Pichon-Longueville Baron 2016 "Les Griffons de Pichon Baron" Paulliac

Description

This is the second wine of Chateau Pichon-Longueville Baron. 750 ml.

"The 2016 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is quite powerful and dense. Aging, and specifically, the barrel regime of 18 months in oak (60% new) has left the 2016 with a heavy toast/torrefaction quality that at present overpowers the dark fruit and Cabernet aromatics the wine showed from barrel." Antonio Galloni 91 Points

This is fleshy and caressing in feel, letting warm plum sauce and cassis notes roll along, lined with pretty violet and anise accents. There's a light tug of earth through the gently toasty finish, but this is pretty much all fruit and is ready to go. Drink now through 2030.Wine Spectator 91 Points
