Decanter, December 2021

Remarkably fresh and delicate nose yet full of spicy and graphite notes for this still youthful wine of impressive depth. Merlot seems to dominate at this stage, as evidenced by a juicy, full-bodied, and suave mouthfeel...

Neal Martin's Wine Journal, February 2012

Tasted ex-château and single blind in Southwold. "Oh baby baby" as Salt `n Pepa declared back in the day: Pichon Baron is a real star of this vintage. It is a little introverted at first tightly-wound dark berries tar and...

View From The Cellar, August 2011

(93+) Currently, the 2008 Pichon-Baron is showing even better than the 2009, as the oak has already fully integrated into the body of the wine and the balance here is now impeccable. The bouquet is deep, complex and...

Wine Spectator, April 2011

This is solidly packed for the vintage with dark currant fig and graphite notes framed by bittersweet cocoa espresso and iron. Still a touch chunky on the finish but the structure is fine-grained and this should settle in...
