Pichon Baron 1800cl 2016
Château Pichon Baron has hit a remarkably rich vein of form from 2015 onwards. The 2016 is a superlative effort of compelling complexity and tantalising tension. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot, it has wonderful aromas of crème de cassis, black cherry, truffle, cedar, liquorice, exotic spices and graphite. On the palate it is bold, intensely structured and jam-packed with mineral-laced black fruits and spices, concluding with an exceptionally long, lingering finish.
