France, Bordeaux, Medoc, Pauillac
Bordeaux Blend Red
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. This will be one of those over-performing Pauillacs, perhaps like the 1990 Pichon Baron, that will delight for years to come.
