Chateau Pichon Baron Pauillac Premier 2006
92 points Robert Parker: Closed but promising, this is a tannic, masculine style of wine in 2006, with an inky bluish/purple color as well as aromas of incense, charcoal, smoked meats, and the classic creme de cassis... The aromatics are still retrained, but the wine is full-bodied in the mouth, tannic, backward, and set for a relatively long life... 2014-2028.

Sehr intensive Farbe, schön fruchtig in der Nase, wunderbar nach Süssigkeiten, Lakritze. Im Mund: Fruchtig, jedoch ziemlich harte Tannine. Im Keller belassen und 20 Jahre später geniessen!
Again... great choice tonight Table #7, thanks for the opportunity to decant this more full and round Bordeaux. @ Barolo Ristorante North Palm Beach.
Alluring cassis nose. Potent with good structure and elegant fruit.

External Reviews for Chateau Pichon Baron Pauillac Premier
This is fantastic for 2013 with seamless tannins and a long finish. Extremely well made. Full body with lovely core of fruit and a fresh finish. Tannin tension here. Reminds me of the excellent 1988. About 82% cabernet sauvignon and 18% merlot. James Suckling.
The Grand Vin is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Merlot that is being raised in 70% new wood cropped between 20 and 25hl/ha. Harvest kicked off with the old Merlot vines on 7 October and finishing with the old Cabernet vines between 11 and 14 October. Since 2000 until 2011 they have produced 180 000 bottles per year and in 2013 it is 120 000 cases. It has a crisp defined bouquet with crisp blackberry and cassis fruit interlaced by a fine mineral component. It has less flair than recen
Comprised of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon this is a densely ripe wine full of black fruits smoky wood and generous tannins. Given its structure the wine will obviously age well even if it is drinkable in the medium term. Wine Enthusiast.
Features a bright lively leafy edge with cassis bush and tobacco framing the slightly tangy core of red currant and black cherry showing a solid note of iron. Cuts a distinctive profile displaying sappy intensity through the finish.
This has muscle, but is fleshy and almost creamy along the edges, with a very dense core of plum, blackberry and cassis waiting in reserve. A sleek iron edge cruises in on the finish and adds some serious length.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Pichon-Longueville Baron 1500ml

Food Pairings for Chateau Pichon Baron Pauillac Premier
<p>This Bordeaux was blended form the village of Pauillac. The Les Tourelles is a Merlot based blend with cabernet sauvignon and cab franc. On the nose you get leather and subtle notes of sawdust mixed with dark fruit. The palate is soft and deep with a calm power to it, which is apparent on the finish with the gripping tannins. The finish stays with you for some time but falls away gracefully. Highly recommended with fish meals and fruit. Cheers! </p>
