(09-2016) To my great surprise, I have never encountered the 1983 Pichon-Logueville Baron before. The estates from this pre-Jean-Michel Cazes era are not renowned, however, this was a decent, pleasurable Pauillac. It has a surprisingly lush, almost Côte Rôtie-like bouquet, gamey and animally, yet with sufficient fruit to carry that off. It certainly has more pleasure to give than a 1986 Pichon Baron that I tasted a few weeks earlier. The palate is sweet on the entry with a soft texture, notes of mulberry and red plum, leather and game. It is missing a little backbone and freshness towards the finish where it begins to run out of ideas, a little fatigued by age, but overall this is a respectable showing for a 33-year-old wine. Drink it now because it will not improve further.

Château Pichon Longueville Baron

Classified a 2nd growth in 1855. The vineyard of Pichon Baron (as they called to distinguish it from its neighbor Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande) is situated right next to Chateau Latour on one of the finest vineyards in Pauillac. In the seventeenth century, Jacques de Pichon Longueville Baron, began to construct the vineyard of Pichon-Longueville. The reputation of the wine was established a few years later. The present castle was built in 1851 by Raoul de Pichon-Longueville. The wines of Château Pichon Baron come from this historic property. Resulting in full-bodied wine, rich in tannins, which are characterized by their finesse and elegance. Their length in the mouth is exceptional and they have a significant aging potential.
