Longueville Grand Cru Classe 2013

Region: 
Grape Variety: 
82% Cabernet Sauvignon 18% Merlot
Tasting Note: 
Potentially the best of all the Pauillacs in 2013 (along with Mouton Rothschild), Pichon Baron is dense purple to the rim, which is not typical in this vintage, and exhibits stunning creme de cassis notes along with licorice, forest floor and white flowers. It is medium-bodied, but very complete, with serious texture, impressive purity, depth and ripe tannins on the finish. This is another 2013 that tastes atypically full and impressive. It brings together a classic sense of structure with a modern and very pure expression of fruit.
