Chateau Pichon Baron & Les Griffons
The history of the Pichon family goes back to the Middle Ages; and today, Chateau Pichon Baron is world-acclaimed as a powerful Pauillac estate. There is no escaping the architectural magnificence of Chateau Pichon Baron. The prominent turrets and romantic fairytale castle strike a majestic first impression, but the grandeur does not stop just there.
This wonderful experience continues in a glass of Pichon Baron wine. Pichon Baron is, after all, one of the apellation’s greatest estates classified as Bordeaux Second Growth. The wines scream grandeur, with hallmark characteristics of decadent spices and dark fruit well-supported by a superb structure that lends to its decades-long longevity.
The 2017 Chateau Pichon Baron is one that sensuously slips out of the glass with provocative aromas of cherry preserves, red roses, cardamom and a waft of forest floor. Compelling, soft, elegant and refined, all that is expected of a great grand vin!
As the saying goes, the apple does not fall far from the tree – on in this case, the second wine, Les Griffons De Pichon Baron, is also a grand effort created in the style of the grand vin. This inky hued wine offers a serious, age-worthy style that is going to benefit from careful keeping!
