Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2eme Cru 2017


Lobenberg: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot 2017. Das Schwesterweingut von Lynch Bages, gleicher Besitzer. Ein 2eme Cru, aber seit Jahren im Grunde hinter Pichon Comtesse zurück und inzwischen auch regelmäßig hinter Lynch Bages liegend. Die Weine sind immer sehr gelungen, aber im Grunde immer ein wenig langweilig rund. Reife, wunderschön runde Lakritz-/Cassisnase. Eukalyptus, Minze, voll, reif und dicht. Der Mund ein klein wenig aggressiv. Vielleicht etwas stärker extrahiert. Bei weitem nicht so schick wie Lynch Bages. Sehr schöner Wein, ganz leicht oberhalb von Haut Batailley, auf der Höhe von Haut Bages Liberal. Sehr gelungen, aber nicht die Größe von Lynch Bages. 94-95/100


Decanter über: Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2eme Cru

-- Decanter: A lovely, classic bouquet of blackcurrant, blackberry, and other black fruits with an attractive floral flourish. On the palate, it is medium-bodied and elegantly proportioned but also deliciously juicy, sapid, and long. Already ready for drinking enjoyment, it will nonetheless improve further over the next 10 years. 97/100


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

-- International Wine Report: The 2017 Château Pichon Baron is a standout and one of the finest wines from the vintage. Composed of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot this stunning Pauillac begins to impress with this striking aromatic profile consisting of dark cherries and currants which are beautifully woven together with fresh spring florals, graphite, tobacco, spices and hints of roasted coffee. This possesses a gorgeous medium-plus body with outstanding overall purity and elegance. Impeccably structured and balanced this goes on to thoroughly impress through the long, firm finish. This is an extremely impressive showing from this challenging vintage and while this will likely need a few years of bottle age before it hits its stride it should also go on to have a long graceful evolution ahead for years to come. 96/100


Parker über: Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2eme Cru

-- Parker: The grand vin represents 50% of production this year. A blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot, the 2017 Pichon-Longueville Baron is deep garnet-purple in color and simply sings of vibrant blackcurrants, black cherries and rose hip notes with nuances of potpourri, incense, licorice and pencil shavings plus touches of cigar box and fertile loam. Medium-bodied, super intense and possessing stunning poise, it has very firm, fine-grained tannins and a beautifully silken texture, with bags of freshness and a very long, perfumed finish. 95-97/100


Suckling über: Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2eme Cru

-- Suckling: The currants, blackberries and spices are very pretty here on the nose. The palate is medium-to full-bodied with round, compact tannins and a fresh, linear finish. Cool and racy. Strong and focused. Drink after 2023. 95/100


Wine Enthusiast über: Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2eme Cru

-- Wine Enthusiast: This wine has power and plenty of concentration. Rich fruit bursts out of the glass already, suggesting a wine that will age relatively quickly for this estate. It does have concentration as well as bold fruits that will let the wine mature from 2025. 94-96/100
