Château Pichon Longueville Baron 2020

We zijn steeds meer fan geworden van deze wijn. Voorheen vonden we hem vaak net iets teveel spierballen hebben, maar de laatste jaren is hij mooi in balans en verfijnd. Dankzij veel klei in de bodem heeft de wijn veel frisheid, ook in de warmere jaren. Niet onbelangrijk tegenwoordig. Ze werken ook steeds meer biologisch.

Antonio Galloni Vinous 96-98 – "The 2020 Pichon Baron is utterly breathtaking, and also one of the very best young vintages I have tasted here. An exotic mélange of red cherry, mint, rose petal and blood orange comes alive in the glass. More than anything, though, the Pichon-Baron possesses remarkable energy and vibrancy that builds to an intense, beautifully focused finish. This is hands down one of the most impressive wines of 2020. Superb."

Neal Martin Vinous 95-97 – "The 2020 Pichon Baron underwent an early picking with relatively low yields. A blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot, it has a very tight nose at first that demands 15–20 minute coaxing in the glass. It eventually reveals enticing blackberries, blueberries and hints of balsamic and undergrowth, all very precise; crushed rock scents surface with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, fine-grained tannins and touches of hoisin toward a dense but structured finish of unerring symmetry. Tasted from test tube sample and regular 75cl bottle."

Jane Anson Decanter 96 – "Intense, concentrated, rippling with power while still delivering finesse. A muscular Pichon Baron, layered with liquorice and chocolate shavings. Unmistakably Pauillac, and hugely Cabernet dominant, with savoury spice notes of grilled cumin and the same muscular, saline-backed tannins that you find in Les Griffons, just here with more definition and depth. 70% new oak for 18 months, 48% of overall production. Harvest September 14 to 30. Yields on the old vines here just above 30hl/ha."

Lisa Perrotti-Brown Wine Advocate 95-97+ – "The 2020 Pichon-Longueville Baron is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot aging for an estimated 18 months in French oak barrels, 70% new. The production of the grand vin represents 48% of the harvest this year. Opaque purple-black in color, it comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant notions of blackberry pie, preserved plums and crème de cassis, plus suggestions of Chinese five spice, chocolate mint, graphite and cedar chest with a touch of violets. The medium-bodied palate is built like a brick house, featuring firm, ripe, grainy tannins and bold freshness to support the taut, muscular black fruits, finishing long and spicy."

Chris Kissack Winedoctor 94-96 – "The grand vin is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot, and it takes the fruit from 48% of the estate’s 73 hectares of vines. Fresh and glossy, brilliantly pigmented with violet-black hues in the glass, and modestly saturated. This precedes a very fine nose of blackcurrant and vanilla cream, with touches of black cherry, currant and slate, before we come to what is a very pure, polished and harmonious composition on the palate, with dark summer fruits wrapped up in dark chocolate, vanilla flower, perfumed chalk and sage. It is carried along by a svelte integration of texture, and tannic structure, the latter tightly knit and velvety. Lots of elegant grip here, good energy too, it all coming together on the palate and finish. It lingers beautifully, the tannin wrapping up the perfumed, lightly mineral fruits. Impressive, with fine potential. Two samples tasted, both delivered in 100ml Flaconwit tubes."
