This is the second wine of Pichon Longueville. It is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is nice with cassis, black cherries, slight chocolate and a bit of leather. Medium to full bodied. On the palate, light tannins. Tart, black raspberry fruit. Some black cherries and a bit of chocolate. Good acidity. Nice balance. Long finish. This should improve a bit over the next five to seven years but either way should be great drinking over the next twelve to fifteen. A Chicken and Cheddar Soufflé Would be a nice match.
