Region: Pauillac, Bordeaux, France
Grape(s): Cabernet and Merlot
Producer: Château Pichon Baron
Surprisingly deep colour and fine floral nose with ink and red-black fruits. A blend of 82% Cabernet and 18% Merlot, this has more of a red fruit profile on the palate with raspberries, cassis and violets providing lift and focus. The whole ensemble is underpinned by bright crunchy acidity and, for the vintage, impressive tannic structure. Good length too.
