Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron Cru Classe Pauillac 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Les Tourelles de Longueville (the second wine of Ch. Pichon-Baron) has alwaysbeen, and always will be, a firm BB&R favourite. Why? Simple - this is theepitomy of good Claret at a sensible price. It has pedigree and gravitas but italso has charm and its own identity. There is no better vintage to experienceour favourite than the legendary 2005 vintage in which Les Tourelles deLongueville boasts a complexity above its status. Black cherries and mochahints are abundant, all supported by a structure that will facilitateimpressive ageing.

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
