1997 Chateau Pichon-Longueville Baron Bordeaux

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron, generally referred to as Pichon Baron, is an estate in the Pauillac appellation rated as a second growth in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification. As with other top Pauillac wines, the grand vin is prized for its combination of powerful dark fruits, finesse and elegance, and ability to age for many decades.

The vineyard is situated at the southern end of Pauillac, bordering Saint-Julien and across the road from Château Latour. Its 73 hectares (180 acres) are planted with around 60 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 35 percent Merlot, with smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Rating 86 RP - Seventy percent new oak casks were utilized for this 80% Cabernet Sauvignon/20% Merlot blend. I liked it on each of the four separate occasions I tasted it. Not a heavyweight, it is a medium-bodied, dense purple-colored claret with low acidity and moderate tannin. Well-focused and delineated for a 1997 (most wines of this vintage are open-knit and round), this offering is characterized by copious quantities of sweet black currant fruit intermixed with toasty pain grille scents. In the mouth, there is a well-focused feeling, moderate tannin, and a moderately long finish. RP
