Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, June 2009
A remarkable vintage for Pichon Longueville Baron 1990 is one of this estate's two or three finest wines made in the last 40 years. Still inky/blue/purple-tinged to the rim it reveals an extraordinary bouquet of charcoal... A remarkable vintage for Pichon Longueville Baron 1990 is one of this estate's two or three finest wines made in the last 40 years. Still inky/blue/purple-tinged to the rim it reveals an extraordinary bouquet of charcoal incense creme de cassis blue and black fruits and a hint of licorice as well as an impressively long finish. While drinkable its evolution is extremely slow and I would not be surprised to see it last another two decades or more.

More tobacco and cedar character on the nose with hints of ripe fruit. Full-bodied yet fine and sophisticated with elegant tannins and a long finish. This is always a top-quality red...

Full medium ruby. Nose at once subtle and flamboyant with slightly roasted aromas of currant cedar lead pencil and minerals. Large-scaled sweet and rich with utterly primary fruit suggesting a long future ahead of it... Full medium ruby. Nose at once subtle and flamboyant with slightly roasted aromas of currant cedar lead pencil and minerals. Large-scaled sweet and rich with utterly primary fruit suggesting a long future ahead of it. Tasted next to the '89 this was a much more massive and somewhat softer wine. Very long on the finish with big but smooth tannins. Of more recent vintages only the 2000 has a chance to be in the same quality class as the '90 and '89. Drink 2004 to 2025. 93+ points
