Revealing incredible quality and performing better than it did from barrel, the 2009 appears to be the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron since the 1990 and 1989. An amazing opaque blue/purple color is followed by scents of spring flowers, graphite, smoky charcoal, incense, blackberries, blueberries and hints of coffee and chocolate. Incredibly intense, pure and flawlessly constructed with extravagant layers of fruit and richness, this offering has developed beautifully under the management of Christian Seeley. It is a voluptuous, opulent Pichon Longueville Baron that may eclipse anything they have made in the past. This brilliant wine should be at its peak between 2018 and 2045. - Robert Parker

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.

The Pichon Baron 2009 is a great wine destined to last for many years. It has a very well defined bouquet with blackberry, creme de cassis and still some vanillary new oak that needs bottle age to be subsumed. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannins. This is beautifully composed and pure with an unerring symmetry. It is tightly coiled and very precise, yet the finish has enormous length. Outstanding.

With a structure that runs between acidity and dark smoky tannins, this is a wine with potential opulence. It's very rich in character, dense and dark. The black plum flavors are dominant, along with excellent acidity... With a structure that runs between acidity and dark smoky tannins, this is a wine with potential opulence. It's very rich in character, dense and dark. The black plum flavors are dominant, along with excellent acidity. For the long-term.

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.
