Perhaps the magnum format played its part, but nevertheless...just...wow. This is a millennial Left Bank with the keys to the top drawer. It has an incredibly precise, mineral-driven bouquet with intense black fruit infused with cedar and graphite scents. It just reeks of Pauillac in an almost uncompromising, yet compelling manner. The palate is structured, stylish and effortless, extraordinarily pure and unerringly youthful. This is a Pichon Baron saying, "You ain't seen nothing yet." You could broach this now if you wanted, but the clever people will wisely bunker this for another decade and gloat from 2025 onward. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin

Fantastic aromas of currants berries and hints of minerals. Cool and sleek. Full-bodied with a lovely underbelly of ripe fruit and medium silky tannins. Best Pichon Baron I have tasted since 1990...

Complex nose combines plum mocha minerals tobacco and burnished oak. A bit tight on entry then expands and explodes toward the back showing dense insinuating flavors of black fruits and licorice. Chewy sharply delineated Pichon-Baron with excellent underlying backbone and broad palate-coating tannins. An outstanding vintage for this estate.
