I am a little baffled how WS picks top wines as if they know how the wines will taste in a decade. Is WS proposing that the consumer purchase 2016 Ch Pichon Longueville Baron and consume it now?
To me, this wine is a cellar selection to be held, but so are all the young second growth Bordeaux. To play devils advocate, I ask, “How does WS know 2016 Ch Pichon Longueville Baron wine will fair better than 2016 Ch Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande in a decade? My suspicion is that both wines will be excellent in time. Why is one on the top 10 list, and the other is not?
