Tasting Notes

Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Les Tourelles de Longueville has a pretty nose of wilted roses, dried lavender and kirsch followed by notions of boysenberries, warm cassis and unsmoked cigars with a waft of cedar chest. Medium-bodied, the palate is a bit edgy with mouth-coating, chewy tannins and bold freshness masking the fruit slightly on the finish. 2020 - 2034

Score: 89Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (March 2020), March 2020

Aromas of blueberries and spices with lots of fresh flowers. Full body, with a beautiful core of ripe fruit that balances beautifully with the tannins and bright acidity. A wine for the future yet so enjoyable now. Second wine of Pichon Baron.

Score: 92James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2013

Dark, sleek and inviting, with gorgeous plum cake, fig and blackberry coulis notes mixing with melted licorice snap and tar on the finish. Not small by any stretch, with mouthwatering acidity and vivacity pulling you in now. Should develop with cellaring. Drink now through 2025.

Score: 92James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com, March 2013

This has power, you can feel the alcohol from the Merlot in the blend. At the same time, the fruit drives through with great juiciness.
