Pichon Baron, Pauillac 750ml 2014France, Bordeaux
'A deep red colour leads into a voluptuous blackcurrant nose, poised, seductive and showing stylish oak. Rich but not overbearing, highly concentrated with explosive fruit and tannins. This has depth and structure without undue extraction. Spicy, lively, and very long. Drinking Window 2020 - 2035.' – Stephen Brook, Decanter, 95/100
'The 2014 Pichon-Longueville Baron was broody at first, as if a big "No Entry" sign had been placed in front of the aromatics. But peeking underneath are some wonderful blackberry, cedar and graphite aromas that just sing of Pauillac and exude typicity. The palate is medium-bodied with very impressive depth and concentration on the entry, a superb line of acidity and outstanding precision on the finish. This is clearly fulfilling its potential that it showed from barrel. The only drawback is that it might be unfairly overshadowed by the 2015 Pichon Baron! This will be one of those over-performing Pauillacs, perhaps like the 1990 Pichon Baron, that will delight for years to come. Drink 2022 - 2050.' – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 94/100
'A solid rendering, with an ample core of cassis, cherry preserves and plum cake backed by energetic, brambly tannins. A singed apple wood accent on the finish adds range. Shows good cut throughout. Best from 2020 through 2035.' – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 93/100
About Château Pichon Baron:
Château Pichon Baron, Second Grand Cru Classé, was founded in 1694. Baron Joseph de Pichon Longueville began managing Pichon Baron from the age of 19 until his death at 90 years old. On his death-bed he divided the estate between his 5 children – two fifths going to his 2 sons and three fifths going to his 3 daughters. The son’s sections became, what we know today as, Pichon Baron, and the daughter’s section became Pichon Comtesse. The 73-hectare estate is located on the left bank of the Gironde River, 40 kilometres to the north of Bordeaux. The terroir's best land - the "Butte de Pichon Baron" - is devoted entirely to the production of the Grand Vin, making up the majority of the blend.
