Since 2000, Ch. Pichon-Longueville Baron has been a strong performer in the best vintages, but this 2011 shows that they can also do it in more challenging years. They really are making the most of their great terroir, a weight of controlled and focused fruit on the palate (which few are able to rival), layered with wonderful creamy texture which is lifted and enhanced on a prolonged, powerful and fresh finish. For me, this is amongst the wines of the vintage. Superb.
