2010 Pichon Baron Bordeaux wine reviews, tasting notes and ratings.

2010 Pichon Longueville Baron utilized only 45% of the harvest to make a great 2010 Pichon Baron. The wine reached 13.75% alcohol, the same level as in 2009. From an assemblage of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot, this deep, dark, purple colored wine opens with cassis liqueur, oak, truffle, tobacco and walnuts. Powerful, concentrated and stuffed with ripe cassis and licorice flavors, this dense, classic style of Pauillac ends with a long generous, round, tannic finish. The best since 2005, the wine will be aged in 80% new oak. 96-97 Pts

2010 Les Tourelles de Longueville from a blend of 60% merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine offers a cassis, olives and spice perfumed wine with a medium body. This is a lighter style of ready to drink Pauillac. 86-88 Pts
