Reviews for 2009 Pichon-Longueville Baron Bordeaux Blend

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2012
Amazing aromas of ripe currants and plums with flowers. Full body with super fine tannins and wonderful fruit. It is energized. Better than I remember it from barrel. Reminds me of the 1990 PB. Try after 2020.

Pungent brooding very ripe aromas and flavors of cassis blueberry licorice bitter chocolate espresso and minerals along with hints of spices and underbrush. Large-scaled rich and deep with superb chewy ripeness and terrific mineral lift. At once plush and powerful boasting the texture of a first growth with a near-perfect sugar/acid balance. The palate-staining finish features substantial ripe chewy tannins and rising length. This should evolve gracefully in bottle for two or three decades.

An inky/blue/purple color is followed by aromas and flavors of incense flowery black currants and subtle smoke and oak. This full-bodied 2009 which exhibits wonderful intensity purity and length is an exceptional effort but in this vintage it must take a back seat to some of its peers such as Pichon Lalande Pontet-Canet and Lynch-Bages not to mention all the first-growths. Nevertheless it is a beautiful wine that should drink well for 30+ years. (Tasted three times.)

This delivers a massive core of black Mission fig black currant paste and roasted fig fruit backed by alder wood bay leaf singed cedar and maduro tobacco. The finish lets a racy iron note take over. Long and authoritative... This delivers a massive core of black Mission fig black currant paste and roasted fig fruit backed by alder wood bay leaf singed cedar and maduro tobacco. The finish lets a racy iron note take over. Long and authoritative with gorgeous acidity giving the balance for long-term cellaring. Best from 2013 through 2030. 13000 cases made. -JM

A final blend of 67% cabernet sauvignon and 33% merlot saw 80% of the wine aged in new barrels. This staggering wine gets my nod as one of the finest of the appellation.

This staggering wine gets my nod as one of the finest of the appellation. Dark purple core with slight ruby hues the 2009 Pichon Baron is like perfume in a bottle; cardamom minerals laced with chocolate dark raspberries sweet earth and red and black fruits. The palate is rich and creamy with dark chocolate cherries and a sensational texture. This is going to be long lived. Best to give it another 5-6 years in bottle and enjoy the follow it over the next 25 years.
