Pichon-Longueville Baron Bordeaux Blend Wine 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

92-93 Points, James Suckling: 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.
