Château Pichon-Longueville Baron, Paulliac 1989

Julienne Importing Company, Franklin Park, IL.

Crimson. This attacks fully and is still very solar, its baked richness captures the vintage and the dry conditions well. The texture is enveloping and the depth comes from within, an accumulation of smoky, dark berry fruit, with a light spicing. It motors with fresh drive as it finishes after four hours, reveals telltale lead pencil qualities. A broad and full-bodied wine, with presence. Now – 2030+.
