Les Tourelles de Longueville 2012
2nd Wine of Chateau Pichon Baron, WE 92 points
Les Tourelles de Longueville, like the turrets that embellish the château, embodies the charm of the estate.
The grapes that are used to blend Les Tourelles de Longueville come essentially from the Sainte Anne plot, planted mainly to Merlot, giving this wine a distinctive personality which is heightened by its specific blend.
This wine with the typical profile of a true Pauillac, full-bodied with supple tannins and notes of summer berry fruit, is highly approachable, which is guaranteed to delight wine-lovers in search of easily accessible pleasure. It can be enjoyed young and offers an introduction to the spirit of the Pichon Baron estate.
Les Tourelles is marked by generosity, charm, roundness and sensuality.
Les Tourelles de Longueville can be cellared for over 15 years, but will already be a pleasure to drink within 3 to 5 years.
