Description/ Tasting Notes

The grande dame, the 2012 Pichon Lalande represents only 50% of their harvest production. It has soft, round tannins, endearing elegance, and up-front fruit. It is not a blockbuster, but its lush, richly fruity style is charming and seductive, with raspberry, blueberry, mocha and blackcurrant fruit and a deep ruby/purple color. A gutsy, terroir-driven style, with briar-edged grip carrying notes of macerated black currant fruit, fig and plum sauce. This shows lots of dark anise through the finish, along with notes of roasted apple wood and a hint of cassis bush.

Winery Info/ Brand



The Pichon Baron estate was established in the late 17th Century, also known as the Grand Siècle, in reference to Louis XIV's succession to the French throne in 1661. The producing region was classified as Second Cru Classé in 1855 and became one of the great historic vineyards of Bordeaux. With a rigorous selection policy in the vineyard and in the cellars, the production of a Grand Vin Château Pichon Baron, has achieved an endearing reputation and continued the legacy in the same family for several generations.

Region Info/ Origin



Pauillac is home to several of the world's most famous wine and the region lies in an inauspicious small village in Médoc. Pauillac sprawls over the land size of about 8.8 square miles, is highly optimised for wine production and accounts for a rather disproportionate amount of fine, expensive wine in Bordeaux.
