The second wine, the 2010 Les Tourelles de Longueville, is a gorgeous, plump, fat fruit bomb with oodles of black currants, cherries, spice box, roasted herbs and a hint of barbecue smoke. It is a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and like a lot of second wines, is meant to be drunk as soon as it’s released, although it’s capable of lasting at least a decade or more.

A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon (there is no Cabernet Franc this year) from the vineyard of St. Anne in the west part of the vineyard where there is more Merlot. It has a very pure bouquet with an almost Burgundian purity. The palate is full-bodied with quite a dry entry, but full of vigour and tension, leading to a finish that is more tannic than the 2009. This will need a couple of years in bottle. Drink 2013-2020. Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

A delicious 60% Merlot-based 2nd wine of Pichon Baron. The wine is open and approachable with velvety tannins and good depth of flavours. This wine is lighter and less impressive compared with last year. Beautifully balanced wine that will reward those who can wait at least five years before opening this wine.
