Description

The structure and richness of a Second Grand Cru Classé from Pauillac

The estate

A 2nd Classified Growth of 1855 belonging to the elite group of Bordeaux Grands Crus, Château Pichon Baron is one of the greatest estates of the Pauillac appellation.

The vineyard

A veritable mosaic of terroirs and superbly located near the Gironde estuary, the Pichon Baron vineyard extends over 73 hectares of vines planted in Médoc gravels soils with perfect drainage. The oldest vines of the property are used in the production of this emblematic Pauillac wine.

The vintage

The 2016 vintage was characterised by a cold and wet winter, a spring with heavy rainfall (although the flowering period miraculously took place in excellent conditions) and a summer marked by heat and drought. The glorious Indian summer enabled the grapes to ripen perfectly. The harvest took place from Octobre 3 to 18.

Winemaking and ageing

The wine is aged in barrels, with a proportion of 80% new and 20% of one wine, for 18 months.

Blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (85%)
Merlot (15%).

Characteristics and tasting tips for Château Pichon Baron 2021

Tasting

Nose
Intense and very pure, the nose combines black fruit fragrances (blackberries, blueberries) with woody (cedar) and mineral (graphite) notes.

Palate
Medium-bodied, the palate entices with its refined structure and tight tannins. A silky, creamy feel stretches to a persistent, aromatic finish.
