2ème Grand Cru Classé

Vintage: 2018

Producer: Château Pichon Baron

Château Pichon Baron, Second Grand Cru Classé in 1855, is one of the great historic vineyards of Bordeaux. A rigorous selection policy in the vineyard and in the cellars ensures the production of a Grand Vin, Château Pichon Baron, which is the pure expression of our unique terroir.

Vintage

After a mild and rainy winter, the spring of 2018 was marked by heavy rains as well. The significant mildew pressure required great attention to the vineyard. The beautiful summer that took place in July then made it possible to obtain very ripe fruit. The high temperatures favoured a high degree of anthocyanins in the grapes, which had thick skins, a nice quality of tannins and perfect levels of acidity. At Château Pichon Baron, the grape harvest began on September 24 and ended on October 10.

The Château Pichon Baron 2018 also rewards the efforts and constant attention of the property's technical teams. From the vineyard to the cellar, nothing was left to chance. A very precise and rigorous selections both of the plots and within the plots allowed the teams to select only the most beautiful grapes.

Blending Cabernet Sauvignon (78%) and Merlot (22%), the Château Pichon Baron 2018 is aged in new oak barrels (80%) and barrels of one previous wine (20%) for 18 months.

TASTING NOTES

Château Pichon Baron 2018 reveals a dark garnet colour. The precise and delicate nose offers notes of fresh fruit, black berries and spices. The attack is mellow, generous, rounded and juicy, developing powerful, well-blended tannins. The body is structured with silky, racy tannins. The flavour is carried by the structure, which preserves the mid-palate. The finish is tasty, full, fleshy, and harmonious.
The richness is perfectly integrated and the style is highly characteristic, built to last through the decades, while retaining elegance and distinction.
