2010 Pichon Baron 75CL
It is full-bodied and opulent with relatively high tannins but they have sweetened up considerably from barrel. The oak is clearly pushed to the background by the wine’s wealth of fruit, glycerin and full-bodied texture. Sensational.
The estate was founded in the late 17th Century. This period was known as the Grand Siecle, or "Great Century", in reference to Louis XIV's 1661 accession to the French throne.
In 1689 Pierre Desmezures de Rauzan, an influential wine merchant and steward of the prestigious Latour and Margaux estates, bought plots of vines close to the Latour estate to create Enclos Rauzan. These vines were part of his daughter Therese's dowry when she married Baron Jacques Pichon de Longueville in 1694, the year in which the Pichon Baron estate was founded. An illustrious estate, with an enduring reputation, was born. It remained in the same family for generations.
