Wine EnthusiastBarrel Sample. Named after the turrets that surmount the château of Pichon Longueville, this wine has its own dedicated portion of the vineyard. It is open, generous and full bodied. Ripe berry fruits dominate while still leaving room for the fresh acidity typical of the 2014 vintage.
Wine SpectatorBright red currant and cherry fruit keeps this slightly high-pitched, while hints of savory and cassis bush fill in before an iron edge emerges on the finish. Still a touch taut, but the purity and range should win out in the end.
