Château Pichon Longueville Baron Pauillac 2015

$169.00

The wine produced here was classified as one of fifteen Deuxièmes Crus (Second Growths) in the original Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855. Located on the Left Bank, some consider Pauillac to be the best sub-AVA in the world.

Complex, elegant, and with incredible possibility for long aging, Château Pichon Baron epitomizes what makes Pauillac one of the sacred places in Bordeaux. This wine is aromatically complex and incredibly concentrated yet light on its feet. Your grandkids will be able to enjoy this wine; winemaker Christian Seeley says that classic vintages of Pichon Baron like this one continue to improve with age for 30-40 years!!

98 (Cellar Selection), Wine Enthusiast
This is one of the great successes of this vintage. It is generous and rich while also solid and structured. The combination of the essence of black currant and the elegant tannic structure are superb. This is a wine for serious aging and the wine should not be broached before 2026.

98, Jeb Dunnuck
Reminding me of the 1990, the 2015 Château Pichon Baron is a sensational bottle of wine made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot that spent 18 months in 80% new French oak. Boasting a deep purple color as well as awesome notes of black raspberries, toasted spices, cassis, lead pencil shavings, tobacco leaf and building minerality, this full-bodied, concentrated 2015 has sweet tannin, a great texture, and a big, big finish. Pauillac all the way, with both opulence and finesse, forget bottles of 4-5 years and enjoy anytime over the following two to three decades. This is a match for the 2009, 2000, and 1990.
97, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Pichon-Longueville Baron is enticingly scented of chocolate-covered cherries, crushed red currants and mulberries with touches of baking spices, potpourri and bay leaves plus a hint of fallen leaves. Sumptuously elegant, refreshing and medium-bodied with gorgeous, expressive, perfumed red fruits and very fine, very firm tannins, it has a persistent, perfumed finish. Its remarkable intensity, freshness and very firm frame suggest a long-lived Pichon Baron, which should cellar gracefully for 30+ years.

This wine is one of my absolute favorites from Pauillac and the Left Bank. Such a complex, layered effort and one that gets better every time you revisit it!
