Dark, almost inky colour with flashes of mauve. Initially toasted nose followed by hints of Morello cherry and blackcurrant, blossoming into aromas of ripe, dark fruit. Full-bodied, warm, forceful and harmonious on the palate. The powerfulness comes through mid-palate with the full integration of the tannic quality pure velvet! The dense, mineral finish reveals all the breed of the terroir with its precision and delicacy. A captivating Pichon-Longueville 2006 which once again represents total commitment to crafting exceptional wines.

Wine EnthusiastBeautifully ripe Cabernet dominates this dense, complex wine. It is balanced so finely, as if on the point of a pin, with black currant juice freshness set against dark tannins and powerful structure. A wine to age, and one of the successes of 2006.

Wine SpectatorThere's an excellent dark color to this, with blowsy, rich aromas of crushed blackberry and currant. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long finish. The center palate will fill in with time. This has lovely balance. Best after 2014.

Wine AdvocateClosed but promising, this is a tannic, masculine style of wine in 2006, with an inky bluish/purple color as well as aromas of incense, charcoal, smoked meats, and the classic creme de cassis that one finds in the top Pauillacs. The aromatics are still retrained, but the wine is full-bodied in the mouth, tannic, backward, and set for a relatively long life. This is not one of the profound wines from Pichon Longueville Baron, but it is certainly a top-flight success for the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028.
