Les Griffons De Pichon Baron 2016

 7,150.00

The 2016 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron wine has a deep garnet-purple color. This 2016 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron gives aromas of tar, sautéed herbs and earth over a cassis and baked cherries core. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and chewy, finishing with an herbal lift. This wine offers classic Pauillac aromatics, and possesses a medium to full-bodied, concentrated, backward vibe that’s going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age. This is closer to the signature of the grand vin than that of the Tourelles de Longueville as it comes from soil with a higher gravel content. The 2016 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is quite powerful and dense. Aging, and specifically, the barrel regime of 18 months in oak (60% new) has left the 2016 with a heavy toast/torrefaction quality that at present overpowers the dark fruit and Cabernet aromatics the wine showed from barrel.
