Item #: aw-3033-so

Product Notes:
Blackberry, with violet and currant undertones. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. A little tight still. Give it some time. This is layered and rich. Classy. A little better than I remember.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008. by Wine Spectator

A sylish, elegant, more restrained style of Pichon Baron, with less obvious new oak than usual, this deep ruby/purple-colored wine offers a pure black currant-scented nose with subtle aromas of coffee and smoky toasty oak. In the mouth, the wine displays less weight and muscle than the 1996, but it offers suave, elegant, rich fruit presented in a medium to full-bodied, surprisingly lush style. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2016.by Robert Parker

About Estate:
Château Pichon-Longueville Baron, a leading Pauillac 2éme Cru Classé estate, is one of Bordeaux's most illustrious "super seconds". In 1987 it was bought by the AXA Millésimes Group, who also own Cantenac-Brown, Petit-Village, Suduiraut. AXA built a state of the art cuverie and chai at Pichon-Longueville Baron and has recently installed Christian Seely as general manager. Pichon-Longueville-Baron's 50-hectare vineyard (Cabernet Sauvignon 75%, Merlot 25%) runs adjacent to that of Château Latour and lies on deep gravel beds. Pichon-Longueville Baron's wine is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. The best examples of Pichon-Longueville Baron have layer upon layer of unctuous, vanilla-scented, blackcurrant and cassis fruit, intermingled with cigar box and lead pencil shavings aromas. They require cellaring for at least 10 years.

Food Pairing:
Red Bordeau is excellent with beef, lamb, grilled veal, game such as pheasant and poultry such as turkey. The wine pairs well with food made with rich sauces. Other good accompaniments are: tandoori, pGtT, bean dishes and stews.

Brussel Sprouts with Pancetta

Ingredients: 2 lbs. Brussel sprouts, sliced about 1/4 inch thick 1/4 lb. Pancetta, diced 1 Tbs. olive oil 1 shallot, finely diced salt and pepper 1/2 cup chicken stock 2 Tbsp. Italian parsley, finely ch
