Wine Advocate: 96-98/100 Punkte ´´The 2016 Pichon-Longueville Baron is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot picked between 3 and 18 October at 39 hectoliters per hectare for estate (therefore the Grand Vin will be less). It is matured in 80% new oak and 20% one year old for 18 months. It has a very intense, extremely pure bouquet with blackberry, bilberry, cedar and graphite notes; it is a straight-down-the-fairway Pauillac. The palate is medium-bodied with a very tensile opening, that seam of graphite penetrating the black fruit. There is a wonderful structure here, unapologetically classic in style with just the right amount of austerity on the aristocratic finish. The aftertaste is incredibly long, lingering after two or three minutes in the mouth. This is a majestic Pichon-Baron and it may well to surpass both the 2009 or 2010.´´ Trinkgenuss: 2026 bis 2060 Weinwisser: 19/20 Punkte ´´… (85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 45% Grand Vin) Konzentriertes, samtenes, aromatisches Bouquet, schwarze Beeren, Pflaumen, Black Currant, dunkler Tabak, fein Lakritze. Dichter, vielschichtiger, wuchtiger Gaumen mit viel gutem Tannin, dichtverwobener, muskulöser Struktur, kräftiger Frucht, vielfältiger, dunkler Aromatik, sehr langer, dichter Abgang´´ Wine Spectator: 96-99/100 Punkte ´´Has the pure, fresh, racy feel of the vintage, which is even more admirable considering the depth of the red currant, plum and cherry preserve flavors at the core and the power of the structure on the back end, pulling in accents of graphite and loam. A thumper of a Pauillac.´´ James Suckling: 98-99/100 Punkte ´´I have been waiting for this for a long time. It´s a remake of the legendary 1990 Pichon Baron. Full body, ultra-polished yet powerful tannins and a glorious finish. The will evolve beautifully. The core of fruit and tannins are great. A truly great Pichon Baron.´´ Antonio Galloni vinous: 93-96/100 Punkte ´´The 2016 Pichon-Longueville Baron is fabulous. In fact, the 2016 is one of the best recent Pichon-Barons I can remember tasting. Smoke, gravel, chocolate, graphite, licorice, leather, black cherry and grilled herbs open up first as the wine shows off its extraordinary aromatic palette. Like so many wines in this vintage, the 2016 delivers serious flavor intensity, but with no excess weight. The richness of the Cabernet, at 85% of the blend, is palpable, as is the quality level. Vivid and deep to the core, the wine finishes with notable density, yet retains its midweight structure.´´ Wine Enthusiast: 96-98/100 Punkte ´´This is a sumptuous wine, its black fruit tones surrounding ripe tannins. It is generous in acidity as well as an open ripe-fruit character. It is concentrated and obviously designed to age well; drink from 2024.´´ Bitte beachten Sie die Sonderbedingungen der Subskription in unseren AGB.
