Regular price $95.00 Sale

1997 Chateau Pichon-Longueville Baron Bordeaux - 750ml 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
