Winemaker's Notes

A nose of blackcurrant, licorice and marked spicy aromas. On the palate, the wine is plump, full-bodied, extremely appealing with fruity substance and still marked young tannins, which will mellow in time.

Critical Acclaim

"The dark ruby/purple-colored Pichon Longueville Baron reveals aromas of charcoal, black currants, and sweet toasty oak. This low acid, medium-bodied, charming, lush 1999 possesses good stuffing, ripe tannin, and a moderately long finish. "
