Tasting Notes

87-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(72% merlot, 19% cabernet sauvignon and 9% cabernet franc) Medium red-ruby. Reticent aromas of currant, plum, mocha, iron, chocolate and caramel; very Pomerol. Suave, broad, dry and full; an elegant, sensual, mouthfilling wine with a velvety texture and subtle persistence. Very round and gentle-this is high in pH (3.95) and low in acidity (3.02). Stephane Derenoncourt has taken over from Michel Rolland as consulting winemaker." According to the Wine Spectator: "Sweet berry and milk chocolate aromas follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a medium finish. A delicate and attractive wine. Best after 2011." (03/09) K&L's notes - 72% merlot, 19% cabernet sauvignon, 9% cabernet franc. Very hard to taste at Pichon-Baron, but it did open up after some airing. These 2006s need to be decanted before they show any softness. *+ Ralph Sands: Racy bright purple fruit, real spicy, zesty acidity, attractive but could use a bit more roundness/ripeness.
