    94/100
  • Ready, but will keep

Description

Most top Claret is best described as elegant, classy, precise and sophisticated, but winemaker Jean-René Matignon always manages to add an extra quality to the wines of Pichon-Baron: sexiness. Their 1996 has this attribute in abundance and is now on top form. With its delicious, concentrated fruit flavours and layers of complexity it will give immense pleasure for current drinking but will keep for a little longer.
