Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2009
There's an excellent dark color to this with blowsy rich aromas of crushed blackberry and currant. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long finish. The center palate will fill in with time. This has lovely balance... There's an excellent dark color to this with blowsy rich aromas of crushed blackberry and currant. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long finish.

Pungent high-pitched aromas of blackberry cassis minerals bitter chocolate and mocha. Suave fine-grained and densely packed with lovely violet lift to its concentrated dark fruit and mineral flavors. Juicy acidity and serious building tannins give this very young wine terrific backbone for aging. Really spreads out to saturate the palate. 92(+?) points

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Pichon Baron has more red than black fruit on the nose, quite showy with hints of crème de cassis and then later it calms down to reveal classic pencil lead aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip in the mouth. This is quite assertive and grippy, although later vintages have evinced more precision and mineralité on the finish. Still, this is a fine if rather burly Pichon Baron. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin
