Château Pichon-Longueville Baron, 2ème cru classé 2009

RRP £151

This second growth Pauillac, often thought of as the more masculine of the two Pichons (nominative determinism?), is imposing and confident in 2009. On the palate it has a subtle, building sweetness. The concentrated, svelte juice is cloaked in velvety tannin, leading into a long finish. This is characteristically accomplished.
