Degustation notes

Intense purple, almost black colour, a noble nose combining delicate roasted notes with aromas of ripe black berries, almost stewed, marked by the liveliness of its youth and softness on the palate, tannic youth and expressive fruit, very seductive, lovely roasted aromas, a modern wine that would benefit from a bit of ageing.

    Dies ist zwar „nur“ der Zweitwein von Pichon-Longueville Baron aber er steht dem Erstwein kaum nach. Für Bordeaux-Liebhaber sehr zu empfehlen, aber unbedingt auf den Jahrgang achten. Es hat noch 2013-er im Umlauf (=meiden), 2014-2016 (=kaufen).
