Château Pichon Baron 2020, Pauillac, Grand Cru Classé 

Château Pichon Baron 2020, Pauillac, Grand Cru Classé 

On the nose, nicely conducted, racy and offers a perfect harmony between power and delicacy, fine/elegant texture, depth and complexity. It reveals notes of ripe/dense black berries, crushed cassis and more slightly ripe/chunky raspberry combined with hints of morello cherry, violet, zan, as well as fine points of cardamom, blond tobacco, star anise, a discreet hint of toasted hazelnut, torrefaction and a subtle hint of pepper (in the background). On the palate, fruity and offers juiciness, minerality, freshness, nice definition, gourmandize, concentration (in finesse/delicacy), subtlety, tension, a nice harmony, an acidic frame, a lot of finesse/delicacy in the approach despite the richness/power of the wine. The wine expresses juicy/fresh blackberry, bright black currant and more subtly bright black berry notes on the palate with hints of morello cherry, ripe blueberry, violet, graphite, incense as well as hints of mocha, black tea, saffron, blueberry, roast, very fine cardamom and toast. Good length. The tannins are fine, precise and polished.
