Tasting Notes Pichon Baron 2008

96

Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. “Oh baby baby” as Salt ‘n Pepa declared back in the day: Pichon Baron is a real star of this vintage. It is a little introverted at first, tightly-wound dark berries, tar and graphite and a touch of autumnal leaves. The palate has a chewy entry, good acidity, firm grip with a dense persuasive finish that is First Growth standard. There is quite a bit of extraction here but it is beautifully focused and tensile. This is one of the finest Left Bank wines. Tasted January 2012.

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.

A young wine with a solid core of fruit and toasted oak, with hints of chocolate and cedar. Full and silky, with a lovely texture and a long, fruity finish. Lots going on here. Solid and integrated. All there. Give it three to four years of bottle age.
