Tasting Notes Pichon Baron 1990

97

A remarkable vintage for Pichon Longueville Baron, 1990 is one of this estate's two or three finest wines made in the last 40 years. Still inky/blue/purple-tinged to the rim, it reveals an extraordinary bouquet of charcoal, incense, creme de cassis, blue and black fruits, and a hint of licorice as well as an impressively long finish. While drinkable, its evolution is extremely slow, and I would not be surprised to see it last another two decades or more. Release price: ($390.00/case)

Tasted at a private dinner hosted by The White Club in Basel. The 1990 Pichon Baron never fails to deliver. Here, it has that stunning bouquet that puts the under-performing Mouton in its place: an intense, multi-faceted bouquet of macerated dark cherries, mulberry, blueberry, cedar and sous-bois that to be frank, seem to have barely aged in the last decade. The palate is one of immense dimension and yet, as I noted a couple of years ago, time is bestowing this Pauillac with refinement and poise, hints of game present and correct on the finish. If you do not like the Pichon Baron 1990, you do not like Bordeaux. Tasted November 2012.
