Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 1996

Pichon Longueville "Baron" remains one of my favourite Bordeaux.  I tasted this wine blind, and its quality shone through.  It was unquestionably a Bordeaux, and a good one at that.  An aroma of blackcurrants and cigar box.  The palate was similar, with trademark amazing length.  91 points.

Abv: 13%
Price: $180-$220 (auction price range on Langtons)
