Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2eme Cru 2015


Lobenberg: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot. Zu 70% im neuen Holz ausgebaut. Das ist jetzt spannend zu sehen, ob Pichon Baron wie inzwischen so viele Jahre, so deutlich hinter Pichon Lalande Comtesse liegt. Die Nase ist würzig und intensiv. Dieses Château gehört zum gleichen Besitzer, die Versicherungsgruppe AXA, wie Lynch Bages. Eine massiv würzige, schwarzfruchtige Nase, Cassis, Brombeere aber auch rote Johannisbeere, maskulin, gerbstoffreich. Im Mund ist er dann deutlich weich, auch schwarze Kirsche, seidiges Tannin, aber erstaunlich schlank. Es fehlen der ganze Mittelbau und die Größe, es fehlt der Druck in der Mitte. Der Wein ist aber trotzdem unglaublich schön und endet wunderbar würzig, auch Cassis und Johannisbeere spielt mit, es ist ein für Baron ungewöhnlich zarter, wie gesagt leicht schlanker Wein. Was Lynch Bages auch schon war, der Wein macht aber sehr viel Freude. Wenn der Preis passt ist er durchaus schick. 94-95/100


Decanter über: Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2eme Cru

-- Decanter: Yet another nose with standout freshness, even delicacy, but still quite youthful, mingling black fruit, spices, and spring flowers. A bit massive and still tightly wound on the palate, the wine has impressive tannic density and power but also finesse, apparent in the airborne, minty finish. Its terroir expression will need some time to come fully to the fore, but this is a superb wine. 99/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2eme Cru

-- Jeb Dunnuck: Reminding me of the 1990, the 2015 Château Pichon Baron is a sensational bottle of wine made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot that spent 18 months in 80% new French oak. Boasting a deep purple color as well as awesome notes of black raspberries, toasted spices, cassis, lead pencil shavings, tobacco leaf and building minerality, this full-bodied, concentrated 2015 has sweet tannin, a great texture, and a big, big finish. Pauillac all the way, with both opulence and finesse, forget bottles of 4-5 years and enjoy anytime over the following two to three decades. This is a match for the 2009, 2000, and 1990. 98/100


International Wine Report über: Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2eme Cru

-- International Wine Report: -- IWR: One of the most impressive wines from the vintage, the 2015 Pichon Baron is an absolutely stunning showing. This gorgeous Pauillac is composed of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot and slowly begins to open to seductive aromas of blackberries and dark cherries woven together with graphite, tobacco, spring florals and exotic spices all beautifully taking shape. On the palate this is remarkably structured with firm, yet well integrated tannins, along with outstanding depth and concentration This continues to impress with its remarkable precision and length through the finish. While already showing plenty of appeal, this will ultimately has to potential to age gracefully and become an all-time classic Pichon Baron. 98/100


Galloni über: Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2eme Cru

-- Galloni: A dramatic, sweeping wine, the Pichon-Longueville Baron is even better from bottle than it was from barrel. The 2015 is dense, plush and totally voluptuous as it sweeps across the palate to make its presence known. Nuanced and poised, with seemingly endless layers of nuance, the 2015 is super-impressive. A melange of dark red/purplish fruit, lavender, mint, spice and rose petal builds as this towering, dramatic Pauillac shows off its allure. In 2015, Pichon Baron is endowed with spectacular balance and class. This is quite simply a brilliant showing from the 2015. 97/100


Parker über: Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2eme Cru

-- Parker: Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Pichon-Longueville Baron is enticingly scented of chocolate-covered cherries, crushed red currants and mulberries with touches of baking spices, potpourri and bay leaves plus a hint of fallen leaves. Sumptuously elegant, refreshing and medium-bodied with gorgeous, expressive, perfumed red fruits and very fine, very firm tannins, it has a persistent, perfumed finish. Its remarkable intensity, freshness and very firm frame suggest a long-lived Pichon Baron, which should cellar gracefully for 30+ years. 97/100


Neal Martin über: Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2eme Cru

-- Neal Martin: -- NM: The 2015 Pichon Baron is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Merlot picked between 18 September until 9 October. Apparently Christian Seely made use of four additional 80-hectolitre wooden vats that augmented his stainless steel vessels. It has a very pure bouquet with lifted blackcurrant, blueberry and graphite aromas, beautifully delineated, the oak seamlessly embroidered with the fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin. This is disarmingly and utterly harmonious with a startling mineral core. Possibly the most sensual Pichon Baron that I have tasted at this nascent juncture, it gently unfolds in the mouth and leaves with an enormously persistent finish that leaves the senses tingling. If you want to know whether this 2015 is up there with the 2009 or 2010, the answer is unquestionably yes. 96-98/100


Suckling über: Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2eme Cru

-- Suckling: Very solid and muscular Pichon Baron with ripe and velvety tannins. Full and very rich with balance of ripe fruit that deliver blackberry, walnut and spice. Warm and ripe yet finishes cool and sassy. 96-97/100


Vinum über: Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2eme Cru

-- Vinum: Kündet grosse aromatische Komplexität an mit seinen Noten von Lila und Veilchen; von umwerfend frischem Bau, herrlich volles Tannin, ellenlanges, frisches Finale, seidige Art, Transparenz und Präzision. 19/20
