Pichon Longueville Baron 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Barrel sample. 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...94" WE 4/13 "This wine builds on the palate with pretty currants and berries. Full body, with a tender core of fruit and a tannins structure that builds on the palate. It is precise and fresh. Creamy fruit and ripe tannins...92-93" JS 4/13 "parcels near Latour made it into the 2012 Pichon Longueville Baron’s final blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot. A dense purple color is accompanied by an attractive bouquet of incense, cassis, cedar and toasty oak. It is medium to full-bodied as well as bigger, richer and brawnier than most Medoc 2012s. Noticeable tannin in the finish suggests 3-4 years of cellaring is warranted. Drink it over the following two decades...90-93" WA 04/13

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

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.
