Description

Over hundreds of vintages, the châteaux and their winemakers have become very skilled at emphasizing the individuality of their vineyards. There is general agreement that the styles of those "top three" châteaux are discernibly different.

Overall, however, there is still an identifiable Pauillac wine style: full, rich, and characterized by the classic cassis-and-cedarwood aromas of oak-aged Cabernet Sauvignon. They are typically regarded as having the most powerful tannic structure of the Médoc communes, and are often capable of long ageing in the cellar.

Red Bordeaux Blends are known for their powerful structure and deep flavors. Dark fruits and berries such as plum and blackcurrant are commonly used to describe the flavors of red Bordeaux, although there is an unlimited range of terms that have been ascribed to them. Tannins tend to be relatively high in these wines, giving them a firm structure.

Tasting notes: "The colour of Château Pichon Baron 2015 is intense deep garnet red. The nose is expressive and delicate, offering a wonderfully aromatic range of summer berries, black cherries and blueberries, very lightly underpinned by a toasted spiciness. The attack is mellow and the palate, like the nose, is precise and refined. Well-integrated woodiness and delicate, velvety tannins carried by ripe and generous fruit. The finish is juicy and precise. There is overall opulence and denseness from start to finish. This wine is harmonious, with an impressive balance between the fruit and the delicate tannins.”
