Tasting Note:

It's been no secret that we've been in the Pichon Comtesse corner for a little while. This year it's more of an even contest. We were really impressed by Christian Seeley and team's effort. It is still modern, flamboyant and big, but there is a precision, focus and taut muscularity that makes this really compelling. We tasted this twice with similar results. Initially introspective, then it begins to reveal beautiful floral griotte fruit and ripe damsons. This is much more classical and restrained than recent efforts. There's nothing blousy here, it's all cool cassis and minerals; generous but no excess. The tannins are really impressive; they coat the palate and grip the mouth with fine detail. Flavours build and weave over the mouth. Complex, really well measured, with lingering cassis and gravel, salt and spices; finely detailed and very impressive. The most serious Baron for some time. Bravo. 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot.
