85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot in 80% new oak for 18 months
A truly fantastic wine from this excellent vintage.
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Pichon-Longueville Baron offers a suave and seductive nose of warm red and black currants, black plum preserves, truffles, tapenade and rose hip tea with touches of sandalwood and Chinese five spice plus a waft of iron ore. Medium to full-bodied, firmly structured and packed with mineral and exotic spice-laced black fruits, it finishes very long with compelling herbal sparks." 97/100 Lisa Perrotti Brown for robertparker.com
