The 2016 Chateau Pichon Longueville wine is a beauty. This 2016 Chateau Pichon Longueville wine has a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot that was brought up in 80% new French oak. Tasting like a hypothetical mix of the 2009 and 2010. This red has a deep purple color is followed by a powerful yet sensationally pure bouquet of crème de cassis, blackberries, lead pencil shavings, and graphite, and is just about as quintessentially Pauillac as it gets. Full-bodied, fleshy and even a touch flamboyant, it has sweet tannins and a monster texture that coats the palate. Count me in as a huge fan. This Chateau Pichon Longueville is a fabulous wine will be relatively approachable in just 3-5 years but will age for 30 years or more. Drink 2022-2052.
