Baron De L'estrille

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

1995 vintage. Great fill, foil and label. Perfect cork. From a top-notch cellar. Decanted and tasted over the course of two hours. Volcanic ash-styled sed vs chunky-style. Big funk on the nose that resolved after 7-8 minutes. Wine was showing decently (in the 69-72 degree range) but lacking any tannic structure. Placed the decanter atop an ice bucket bath to drop the temp down to 60 degrees or so. Took about 20 minutes but the tannins kicked in the door to say hello. Fruit components stayed constant. Pauillac tendencies were all there. As is the case often with older BDX, the decaying matter/leaves at the onset transitioned to graphite/lead pencil and espresso flavors. This was a superior bottle in great shape. Top of this wine’s specific bell curve. Comparable bottles would look to be drinking this well for the next 5-7 years without dropoff. Out of larger format…could possibly push this into 9.4 status. 2.5.24. — 7 hours ago

Mouton Rothschild For Philippine Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1988

Nearing its end of life but still full of vigor and verve! Beautiful nose, aromatics on the palette, and a reasonable finish. Tannins are in the back with cedar the most apparent note on the front. — a month ago

Les Griffons de Pichon Baron

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Super enjoyable wine and was easy to pick out as a Pauillac. Very drinkable if lacking somewhat in depth and complexity. Would buy again but found it a bit pricy for what it is. Made me think that I need to try the Baron again in the not too distant future.

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2015

Deep Ruby with an elegant bouquet of ripe berry fruits, pepper spice with earthy tones, a traditional Rioja. On the palate flavors of plum and jammy cherry, tobacco, oak, pepper spice, lively acidity. Fine chewy tannins, medium+ finish ending with fruit, oak, spice and an earthy character. — 21 days ago

Château Mouton Rothschild Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2002

So much more open and accessible than any Mouton’s I’ve had from either the 90’s or 00’s. Such a sleeper vintage! Silky, elegant, structured, great length, continued to evolve in the glass. Top notch Bordeaux. — a month ago
