Tasting Note:

Christian Seely described Pichon Longueville as "seemingly paradoxical" given its huge level of power and freshness; the vintage has given them "something they weren't expecting". It was "important to have a subtle hand to manage vinifications". Cool macerations and fermentations kept focus, elegance and freshness in the fruit. It is clearly a very impressive and perfumed Pichon, less monolithic than usual with lots of leafy cassis, sweet hedgerow fruits, iris and graphite. The palate is sleek and powerful with layers of polished, velvety fruit. Composed and tightly wound, this is an expressive, large-scale Pichon Baron. A blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot.
