1990 Chateau Pichon Baron, Pauillac, Bordeaux, France
•
If you ever plan to visit Bordeaux, you must go to Chateau Pichon-Baron and the adjacent Chateau Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande
•
Decanted for around 90 mins, a phenomenal mix of cassis and dark plums with tobacco, clove leather and faint smoky notes. The palate is round and dense, yet superbly smooth. A decent wine with a long and juicy finish. Neal Martin 98pts

View over Gironde - and work in the vineyards. A clear blue sky over Pauillac and much activity. 2017 will soon be gone and a new vintage is about to start. #PichonBaron #TourellesdePichon #Pauillac #November #MFWsoon10YO #LinkingBordeauxwithMFW #vonFilm
Continuiamo con la Francia... qui è difficile sbagliare: al naso, Frutta rossa, sentori fumé, spezie e note balsamiche. La bocca è ampia, tannini morbidi e fitti, ci sono, lo sai e non invadono, sento tabacco, note balsamiche, minerali e affumicato. Suadente. Anche in annata non top... lascia il segno.

SUNDAY LUNCH
Sunday Lunch with a some nice wines! Mauro Molino's Barolo Gallinotto 2011 was off the charts: juicy with a lovely grip, perfect ripe tanins, yet well structured! Pichon B 1979 was delicious after approx. 3hrs aeration, CUNE Reserva was a steady modern Rioja with nice pedigree. 
i love tipsy sundays 😎😄

The wait is over! Pichon Baron is on fire 🔥. Renown for its consistency, structure & character, it is without a doubt one of the top super seconds of Bordeaux. 
The 1996 paired perfectly with the wagyu striploin marble 7. Soft tannins, with a beautiful bouquet of currants, cigar box, cedar & lead pencil. The finish was a delicious blend of freshness and elegance.  Awesome!🍷

Chateau Pichon-Longueville Baron Masterclass: 
2014: This was a cool year, but is in general in Bordeaux considered as the most successful among the classic years, and that is at least the case for Baron. It has a great fruit intensity and classic notes of cigar case and pencil. Also rather fresh. Silky palate! This will be approachable early! 95+ points. 
2012: Another cool year. It is pure and frech, but not as rich and as high fruit intensity as the 2014. It is rather tight, and the tannins dominate. 92 points
2010: Cool but sunny year. A bit closed, but a fantastic fruit core behind. Fine grained tannins. It is rich and has a fantastic structure, and is silky and very elegant. Very long finish. 98 points. 
2009: Warm and sunny year. The average temperature was 2 degrees warmer than in 2010. It has extreme fruit intensity, ripe fruit and soft tannins. Very long finish. 97 points
2008: Cool year with frost in the spring. Lovely weather in the end of the season but not as good as 2014. It has high fruit intensity, but lacks the ripeness in 2009 and complexity of 2010. A bit rustic, but pleasant fine grained rather soft tannins. It has a long fruity finish. 93 points
2007: Another cool year, and no nice wether in aug-sep that usually saves the difficult vintages in Bordeaux. Extreme sorting and selection. It has less richness and depth than 2008. It has a pleasant fruit, but a bit drying tannins. Ready and nice to drink now, and the next 5 years. 89 points. 
2006: The perception about this vintage has been rather negative, but it is starting to show very well now. It has the highest acidity and the highest tannin level in this vertical. It has medium fruit intensity. It is a bit reserved, and although the tannins have softened a bit,  it is rather rustic. I am uncertain how much fruit will be left when the tannins are fully softened. 90 points.

Spent the weekend in Ft. Myers with two very different #Bordeaux wines, in both style and age. The 2009 Château Laroze is a #StEmilion Grand Cru Classé that isn’t widely seen in the U.S. It shows off the ripeness of 2009 and is bold in style. It needs a couple of hours of aeration, and will probably be better in a couple of years as it gains a bit more complexity and sheds some oak. Still, this is a wine to drink over the next five years. This 1996 Château Pichon Baron is the first bottle from a case that was late release from the château in 2015. And its perfect provenance really shows. There was black currant, cedar, leather, barnyard, and leafy tobacco present. The structure is evident, with solid tannins and a fresh acidic backbone. Understated compared to some other left bank wines from 1996, this is really shining right now. I expect its structure and fruit to keep this wine on a nice trajectory, where it should peak within five years. Don’t hesitate to drink this now, and it doesn’t need too much aeration. Cheers! 🍷

An amazing evening - again- at Pichon-Baron yesterday night. A fairytale both in the glass as well as in the Chateau. What a classic estate producing just great wines, from one year to another. Fresh lively wines with a smooth silky tasteful texture of dark fruit. Elegant powerful structure and tannins respecting the character of each vintage. Thanks for sticking to Your DNA! #Pibran #LesTourellesdePichonLongueville #LesGriffons #PichonBaron #Pauillac MFWOnTour #StockholmBordeauxSociety

2009 heavy hitters. Would not have thought they would be approachable but a trusty 2 hour decant they definitely were! The Las Cases was my pick, elegant and perfectly balanced. The Pichon Baron was classically PB, big & masculine. .

Tasting at Château Pichon Baron! Look at that castle 👀 It was built in 1851. In 1855 Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron was classified as a second growth (deuxième cru classé). #pichonbaron #medoc #bordeaux #pauillac #wine #winetasting #winery #winelover #winerelated #love #happy

DENIS #DUBOURDIEU IN MEMORIAM

On sait et on connait l’influence de DENIS DUBOURDIEU quant aux recherches menées sur les vins blancs et les sauvignons qui ont permises aux blancs #bordelais de remonter en qualité et de pouvoir rivaliser avec succès à partir des années 2000 avec les #vins blancs du #monde, tous pays confondus !
Il y a donc une relation profonde entre la recherche fondamentale et la qualité finale des vins vendus
Afin de pérenniser la qualité première des vins de #Bordeaux, il a été créé la « chaire Denis DUBOURDIEU » avec une devise : qualité et identité des vins.
4 grands crus bordelais, #HAU BAILLY, #PALMER, #PICHONLONGUEVILLE #COMTESSEDELALANDE, #PICHONBARON et 6 entreprises leaders de la filière BUCHER VASLIN (pressoirs) , CHENE & Cnie, MICKAEL PAETZOLD, OENEO, SEGUIN MOREAU et BIOLAFFORT soutiennent ce projet qui parait incontournable pour la progression qualitative des vins de Bordeaux.

More wines from the #Pauillac dinner, with some great vintages from Pichon Baron and Pichon Lalande. First was the always epic 1982 Château Pichon Lalande. It had a beautiful floral, fruity, minty nose, with notes of sweet scuppernong, mint, roses, Asian spices, black currant, curry, and rosemary. I loved everything about this wine, from its soft mouthfeel to its deep complexity. Perhaps it wasn’t the best bottle I’ve had, but it was still great. I read somewhere that someone mentioned that this wine is fading, and I’ll be happy to buy all of their 82 Lalande. Next was the 1989 Château Pichon Baron. It’s in a perfect spot for drinking now. Cassis, cedar, violets, musk, leather, rich tobacco, and chocolate on the nose. Showed off nice overall balance, with the tannins poking through at the end. Not as generous as previous bottles but still holding its own. Good length with a mineral-laden finish. Finally, we got to compare the 2000s. First the Lalande, which was more open and generous than Baron. Long, nuanced, and very ripe. I’m surprised that some have referred to this as ‘green,’ as this bottle exhibited nothing of the sort. Perhaps there were some herbal notes, but this only added to the complexity. Also had a minty note on the nose. So where is this in its evolution? It’s in a nice spot for drinking, but it’s going to get better. And while currently it’s more generous and shows better than the 2000 Baron, the Baron is a powerful beast that needs time to emerge. It’s tannic and a bit tight. This is the burly brother of the Lalande. Stern and structured, it still has some background charm. The oak is still evident, and certainly moreso than the Lalande. A good degree of dark chocolate and spice complements the dark fruits. So in it’s current shut-down state, I would probably wait a little to open this. My prediction is that this is going to be a great wine, and I can’t wait to compare these two beauties over the next 20 years.
