2001 Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

2001 Château Pichon-Longueville Baron with rib roast, gratin dauphinois and green beans. Such a powerful wine that is still nowhere near peak. Rather austere, tannic and brooding. Pure cassis, chocolate and bramble. finish goes on forever. Decanted for 4 hours and not enough air. The rib roast was cooked a la @scottmanlin. Low and slow to dry the meat and then sear at the end for aromatics. Came out beautifully this way.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
