Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2002
|Brand||Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
This is an elegant, deep ruby-colored wine with notes of sweet cassis, cedar wood, and tobacco with a hint of chocolate in the background. It is a layered, moderately weighty wine with pretty, even understated fruit flavors, excellent concentration, and a long finish with relatively ripe tannin.
Winespectator / James Suckling (93)
Dense aromas of licorice, tobacco, cedar and currants. Subtle yet complex. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a rich, long finish. Very pretty. One of the best from Pauillac this year, and clearly better than 2001. One of the surprises of the vintage.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
