Château Pichon-Longueville Baron Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

$149

A sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 Pichon Longueville Baron is one of the densest, most concentrated wines of Pauillac in 2008. An inky/purple color is followed by aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, blackberries, charcoal, coffee and licorice. Exceptionally full-bodied with velvety tannins and undeniable appeal, this gorgeous, well-proportioned, larger than life 2008 should age effortlessly for two decades or more. With the realistic pricing that remains for many 2008s, this is a no-brainer. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

In an awkward place right now - but the creaminess from Malo braced up against the stewed dark fruits is a thought piece on what exactly this wine could become.

My favorite of the bunch so far. Got such a lovely funk to it. I personally would have kept this in the cellar for several more years but dad wanted it for his birthday.

We were worried that this was going to be too young. Not for us! A delicious Bordeaux. We’re thankful we have another one (that we’ll drink in a few years).

This wine is in a really good spot right now. Pours dark blood red, some maroon tinge noted at the meniscus. The nose is grilled meat, plum, fig, ripe black cherry, perfume. Dang.... The entry of this wine still shows AMPLE fruit, a touch youthful. Cherry blossom perfume, black cherry core, a touch of earth, almost a slight essence of cocoa powder, very weighty and even slightly acidic. The front was more of black cherry fruit, middle more of a plum and fig. The finish is lengthy, includes ample fruit, tannin, black pepper, and finishes for about 60 seconds at the least. Dang! Rating of 95 easily here.
