Château Pichon Baron (Longueville) 2016 – Pauillac, 2nd Cru Classé

The nose is fresh, fine, structured, racy and offers power as well as a slight charming side. It reveals notes of blackberry, wild strawberry and a hint of fresh cassis associated with a slight woody touch, a very discreet touch of Cuben pepper as well as a subtle/imperceptible hint of cassis bud, dark chocolate/cacao and a discreet hint of toasted oak/caramelized oak. The palate is fresh, fruity, well-balanced, elegant, powerful and offers a beautiful acid frame, freshness, a racy minerality, a slight intensity, a beautiful guideline, a slight charming side, harmony, a slight juiciness as well as a silky matter. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of cassis, fresh wild strawberry associated with a subtle hint of plum, fresh red berries as well as a hint of oak/toasted oak, a very discreet hint of Bourbon vanilla and a subtle hint of cacao on the persistence. Very beautiful persistence.
