    I was blown about by the 2014 Tourelles De Longueville. I tasted in a line-up with other '14s that were over twice the price and it outperformed all of them. Gorgeous nose with earth and savory notes. Dark fruited with powerful acidity that I've found totally characteristic of the '14 vintage. Structured, yet accessible, this is one of the clear standouts of the '14 vintage at its price point.

    This is "one" of the 2nd wines of Pichon Baron and although done in a richer and more approachable style still has the qualitative stamp of that great property. Sweet blackberry fruit, pencil shavings and a savory hint all done up with the sense of balance and proportion you expect but with a touch more Merlot richness to round things out.

    Few wines express more clearly the incredible quality of the 2014 vintage in Bordeaux than this estate label from Chateau Pichon Baron in Pauillac. No longer strictly a second wine with the introduction of “Les Griffons” in 2012, most of the fruit for “Les Tourelles” comes from a single plot. The blend is weighted more to Merlot than Cabernet, producing a more accessible style that is meant to be drunk sooner than the Grand Vin. Elegant and polished, of obvious pedigree, the wine offers sweet, ripe red fruits lightly seasoned with oak spice. Well-balanced and marked by lively acidity and fine tannins. Exceptional quality here. A true value.

    This wine is really NOT the second wine of Pichon-Baron, but rather a separate plot of mainly Merlot grapes. The wine tends to be more feminine than the Baron and this one is sweet and lovely. Blackberry fruit flavors in a region known for red fruit flavors. Plummy and lush. Decant and enjoy.
    Drink from 2018 to 2028
