Pichon Baron

About Pichon-Longueville Baron

The neo-classical turrets of Château Longueville au Baron de Pichon-Longueville are amongst the most iconic images of Bordelaise grandeur in the entire region. For many years, Pichon existed as one exceedingly large property, consisting of some 50 hectares of stunning terroir in the legendary commune of Pauillac.

 

Death and marriage, the two great catalysts for change in 19th century France, resulted in the split we see today between this great property, and its sister Pichon Lalande.

 

Remarkably for two estates which were once one, their styles are dramatically individual - at least in the modern era. Lalande quickly garnered a reputation of feminine elegance rightly or wrongly, but most likely in its early years as a result of being under female ownership, and has undoubtedly pursued this identity in its wines of recent years. Baron, conversely, was considered the more overtly powerful and structured of the two.

 

The slew of excellent reviews from the world's leading critics for multiple vintages of this estate repeatedly marvel at the remarkable power of the tannins, and the breath-taking concentration always judged to perfection. Quality has certainly increased dramatically at this château, largely due to a ruthless reduction in the quantity of Grand Vin produced.

 

The team at Pichon Baron decided to focus almost exclusively on the very best site available to this "Super Second", a gravel plateau opposite Château Latour, for their first wine - the rest, and the vast majority, is consigned to two very impressive second wines.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous (90-93)

The 2015 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron wraps around the palate with striking persistence and creaminess. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, spice, new leather and licorice are all pushed forward. Succulent, open-knit and inviting, the Griffons captures the essence of the year in spades. Despite its forward personality, there is plenty of tannin and structure lurking beneath. This is a strong showing from the Griffons, the second wine of Pichon Baron.

Les Griffons de Pichon Baron 2018 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (91-93)

A blend of close to equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon (it was a great vintage for the Merlot in this cuvée), the 2018 Les Griffons De Pichon Baron is aging in 60% new French oak barrels, where it will stay for 18 months. Deeply colored, with a rocking bouquet of crème de cassis, lead pencil, black cherries, earth, and flowers, it's more finesse-driven and structured than the Les Tourelles de Longueville, with a straight, focused, yet still layered and ripe personality. It's another beautiful wine.

Wine Advocate (87)

The 2014 Les Tourelles de Longueville did not show as well as some might have expected at primeur. Now in bottle, I stand by that original sentiment because there is something a little anonymous on the nose, missing the fruit intensity or the terroir expression one would have hoped for. The palate is better: simple red berry fruit laced with cedar and a dash of spice, an easygoing Deuxième Vin that should perhaps aspire for more.

Wine Advocate (86)

After having some mediocre bottles of this wine, the last several times I tasted it, it performed well. Still dark ruby with an orange edge, the 1961 Pichon-Longueville has a big, spicy, damp-earth, cedary bouquet, and rich, fat, substantial flavors that lack the multidimension of the finest 1961s. Anticipated maturity: Now-2000. Last tasted, 2/88.

Pichon Baron 1982 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (92)

This wine turned out much better than I expected. At a young age, it was somewhat disjointed and seemingly lacked acidity, but there is no doubting its level of concentration. It has firmed up and lost some of its baby fat, and now reveals plenty of sweet, smoky, leathery black currant fruit, a plush, opulent mouthfeel, and has reached full maturity. The color is starting to brick at the edge of the glass. This complex, rich 1982 is best consumed over the next 5-8 years. Release price: ($105.00/case)

Pichon Baron 1983 (1x150cl)

Wine Advocate (87)

To my great surprise, I have never encountered the 1983 Pichon-Logueville Baron before. The estates from this pre-Jean-Michel Cazes era are not renowned, however, this was a decent, pleasurable Pauillac. It has a surprisingly lush, almost Côte Rôtie-like bouquet, gamey and animally, yet with sufficient fruit to carry that off. It certainly has more pleasure to give than a 1986 Pichon Baron that I tasted a few weeks earlier. The palate is sweet on the entry with a soft texture, notes of mulberry and red plum, leather and game. It is missing a little backbone and freshness towards the finish where it begins to run out of ideas, a little fatigued by age, but overall this is a respectable showing for a 33-year-old wine. Drink it now because it will not improve further. Tasted September 2016.

Pichon Baron 1990 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (98)

The 1990 Pichon-Longueville Baron has always been one of my benchmark wines, one that never ceases to perform. Now at 27 years of age, it is clearly at its peak, and what a wondrous thing it is. Now showing some bricking on the rim, the bouquet is utterly sublime, with red berries, cedar, touches of graphite, crushed rose petals and incense. You just want to become enveloped by these aromas. The palate is perfectly balanced, perhaps not as structured as it once showed since the tannins have mellowed, but what you get is a Pauillac relishing its secondary phase, which is almost Burgundy-like in terms of mouthfeel. Suffused with tension, it gains weight in the mouth toward the slightly tart finish. It is a Pichon Baron that only knows how to give sophisticated drinking pleasure. I once wrote that Pichon Baron is better than many 1990 First Growth, and that is a statement I have no reason to change. Tasted April 2017.

Pichon Baron 1991 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (86)

This property, which made brilliant wines in 1988, 1989, and 1990, fashioned respectable wines in both 1991 and 1992. The 1991 exhibits a formidable, opaque, dark purple color, and a tight but promising nose of licorice, minerals, and blackcurrants. The attack offers wonderfully ripe fruit in a medium-bodied format, but the finish is dominated by hard, tough tannin. Is there sufficient fruit? I think so. It is one of the most promising wines of the vintage, but backward. This wine needs a good 2-3 years of cellaring; it should last for 15 or more.

The 2008 Pichon-Longueville Baron has a refined and focused bouquet with classic blackberry, mint and graphite aromas that gather momentum with aeration. The palate is beautifully balanced with pure black fruit, a fine bead of acidity, quite an intense finish with layers of graphite-infused black fruit that linger on and on. Wow. This is one of the most impressive Pauillac wines this vintage. If I were to rush out and buy one 2008 Bordeaux it may well be this. (Tasted at BI Wine & Spirit’s annual 10-Year On tasting.)

Borderline perfection in a bottle, the 2010 Pichon-Longueville Baron (79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot) boasts a saturated purple color as well as truly extraordinary aromatics of crème de cassis, licorice, crushed rock-like minerality, graphite, and spring flowers. Possessing full-bodied richness, a huge, unctuous mid-palate, and building tannin, it shows the purity, grandeur, and precision that makes this vintage so remarkable. Hide bottles for another 4-5 years, count yourself lucky, and enjoy bottles over the following 2-3 decades.

Wine Advocate (97-100+)

The 2019 Pichon-Longueville Baron is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot, harvested from the 18th of September to the 11th of October. It is being aged in French oak barrels, 80% new, for 18 months. This grand vin represents 49% of the harvest. Very deep purple-black in color, the nose skyrockets from the glass with vibrant scents of freshly crushed blackberries, black raspberries and blackcurrant pastilles followed by perfumed sparks of fragrant earth, clove oil, lilacs, crushed rocks, molten chocolate and cinnamon toast. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with layer upon layer of black fruit, mineral and exotic spices, framed by beautifully ripe, finely-grained tannins and tons of freshness, finishing with a lingering soft-spoken whisper of floral and earth notions. This is an absolutely beguiling expression that is classic Pauillac and yet it is Pauillac like no other.
