Chateau Pichon Baron Pauillac Premier 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Wine was one of the biggest productions and source of enrichment in the roman empire. This trade was the most important one, as the italy could not assume its own consuption. The culture of the vines itself was different : different sorts of pergolas, vines growing on trees and another philosophy of the plant considering as it was more than a vegetal. Sometimes vines were married with trees to take their strength. Many sorts of wines existed in roman antiquity, from ones from a single place, family of wines with local interpretations or aromatised recipes. Two things let the use of drinking wine growing : creation of a social hierarchy in Rome and use of wine as a medicine. As important and rich people tryed to be unique and receive there hosts with luxury, some famous people have elaborated a taste hierarchy between the wines. As many authors described the use of wine in medicine and prescribe different wines for each disease, Pline tell one of is friends to drink a glass af mulsum every morning to keep youth. Read less

A strong effort from this well-run estate, Pichon Baron�s 2006 exhibits an inky purple color as well as a sweet, pure nose of black currants, cedar, and smoky new oak. Full-bodied with ripe tannin, impressive concentration, and a layered mouthfeel, this is another noteworthy offering from an estate that has been remarkably successful over the last 15+ years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025+.
