Château Pichon Baron 2016 – Pauillac, Cru Classé

Château Pichon Baron 2016 – Pauillac, Cru Classé

The nose is elegant, beautifully powerful, beautifully aromatic, beautifully structured, racy and offers intensity. It reveals notes of blackberry, strawberry and small notes of cassis associated with touches of fleshy cherry, violet, hints of gray pepper and very discreet toasted hints, chocolate, vanilla as well as a subtle hint of tea. The palate is fruity, beautifully juicy, beautifully elegant, precise, well-built and offers a beautiful definition, tension, a beautiful structure, minerality as well as a beautiful finesse of the grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy raspberry and small notes of sour cherry / cherry associated with fine touches of ripe / acidulous cassis associated with fine touches of licorice, toasted, tonka bean, racy minerality / graphite as well as discreet hints of Bourbon vanilla and very discreet hints of chocolate (in the background). Tannins are elegant and structuring.
