Wine Region: Paulliac, Bordeaux, France

Tasting Notes: Château Pichon Baron 2016 has a beautiful, intense garnet red color. The nose reveals aromas of red and dark fruit such as blueberry, black cherry and blackcurrant, followed by very lightly toasted notes with a hint of vanilla and spices. The fleshy, powerful attack is balanced by richness and a certain fullness. The tannins are silky, opulent and lengthy, with some crispness. The finish is precise. Altogether it is dominated by the tipycity of the grapes and by tension, and is dense and full-bodied.
