Pichon-Baron is still an incredibly smart buy. Think about it – would you rather have ONE BOTTLE of 2009 Latour or EIGHT BOTTLES of 2009 Pichon-Baron in your stable? We thought so too. The Wine Advocate says this “appears to be the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron since the 1990 and 1989... Incredibly intense, pure and flawlessly constructed with extravagant layers of fruit and richness... voluptuous, opulent Pichon Longueville Baron that may eclipse anything they have made in the past.”

Wine Advocate

Revealing incredible quality and performing better than it did from barrel, the 2009 appears to be the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron since the 1990 and 1989. An amazing opaque blue/purple color is followed by scents of spring flowers, graphite, smoky charcoal, incense, blackberries, blueberries and hints of coffee and chocolate. Incredibly intense, pure and flawlessly constructed with extravagant layers of fruit and richness, this offering has developed beautifully under the management of Christian Seeley. It is a voluptuous, opulent Pichon Longueville Baron that may eclipse anything they have made in the past. This brilliant wine should be at its peak between 2018 and 2045
