Pichon Longueville Baron 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

"Tasted at the London Pichon-Baron off-line. This is a great ’98 Pauillac. A deep garnet colour. The bouquet is ebullient, ripe, a sense of “constrained exoticism” with blackberry, creme de cassis and sandalwood. It might lacks a little finesse but it is a captivating perfume. The palate is developing nicely quite primal, good structure with a touch of dried herbs and mint. Drive by pure, cedary Cabernet Sauvignon and a tarry, slight austere finish. Impressive, but give it time. Drink 2011-2020. Tasted May 2009...92" Neal Martin, WA 9/09

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron:
Chateau Pichon-Longueville is made from vines mainly situated on the historical terroir of the property. The wines produced are powerful, rich in tannins, and characterised for being both elegant and muscular. They have an exceptional length in the mouth, and possess a remarkable ageing potential.
