Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 1995
|Brand||Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron|
A stylish, elegant, more restrained style of Pichon Baron, with less obvious new oak than usual, this deep ruby/purple-colored wine offers a pure black currant-scented nose with subtle aromas of coffee and smoky toasty oak. In the mouth, the wine displays less weight and muscle than the 1996, but it offers suave, elegant, rich fruit presented in a medium to full-bodied, surprisingly lush style.
Winespectator / James Suckling (94)
Crushed blackberries, with licorice and light spice. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a caressing, delicious finish. Starting to come around. Rich, racy and balanced.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
