This is a blended wine of Merlot and Cabernet, but the wines’ personality is marked by our great Cabernets.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) June 16, 2011
Prominent Bordeaux classified growth, Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron (commonly called Chateau Pichon-Baron), announced the prices of its 2010 wines today. The Pauillac "Super Second" Growth property has received top scores from Robert Parker (97-99), Decanter Magazine (18.5), and Wine Spectator (95-98).
"The Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron assemblage of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot boasts solid maturity along with freshness and an imposing, powerful presence in the mouth," said Roger Bohmrich, Master of Wine and General Manager of New York wine store, Millesima USA LLC. "This is a highly impressive Pichon Baron which has great nobility and potential." Mr. Bohmrich tasted the 2010 Bordeaux Futures in early April 2011 during En Primeur week.
Once part of a larger estate incorporating Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, Pichon-Baron is currently owned by French insurance company AXA Millésimes, who also own Chateau Petit-Village and Chateau Suduiraut.
"This is a blended wine of Merlot and Cabernet, but the wines’ personality is marked by our great Cabernets," says Managing Director, Christian Seely. "Like with any great wine, Pichon wine reflects the area from which it comes – its origins. In this terroir, the noble Cabernet grapes express themselves sublimely, especially in great years."
