Administrator Christian Seeley thinks the 2010 is the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron he has ever made, equaling some of the estate’s colossal wines from vintages such as 1989 and 1990. It was certainly showing well when I stopped by the chateau in January. Opaque purple, with loads of charcoal, licorice, incense and some exotic Asian spices along with abundant cassis liqueur, blackberry and hints of roasted coffee and spring flowers, it is full-bodied and opulent, with relatively high tannins, but they have sweetened up considerably and seem less aggressive than they did from barrel. The oak is clearly pushed to the background by the wine’s wealth of fruit, glycerin and full-bodied texture. This sensational Pichon Longueville Baron needs 5-6 years of cellaring, and should keep 30+ years. 97+ - Robert Parker

Big smoky and juicy wine with the fruit packing in its acidity over the dark complex tannins. Black currants are ripe intense giving a beautiful as well as severely structured wine. - R.V.

The wine reached 13.75% alcohol the same level as in 2009. From an assemblage of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot this deep dark purple colored wine opens with cassis liqueur oak truffle tobacco and walnuts Powerful concentrated and stuffed with ripe cassis and licorice flavors this dense classic style of Pauillac ends with a long generous round tannic finish. The best wine from this estate since 2005 it will be aged in 80% new oak.

The wine is aged in 80% new French oak barrels. Fresh aromas of lilac cassis and violets along with a good dose of cedar and a touch of graphite. Still quite primary at this point it will need time to fully integrate the fruit tannin and oak components. However it is full bodied with gorgeous texture. Looks to be a very successful vintage for Pichon Baron. This wine should be held for at least 10 years and last through 2035.

Solidly built, with a roasted edge to the steeped fig, blackberry and black currant flavors, quickly followed by brambly tannins and notes of bay leaf and espresso. Stays dark and tarry through the finish, with superb drive and verve. Best from 2017 through 2030. – JM

Ripe, exotic nose offers scents of dark berries, black cherry, graphite, peat, iron, flowers and chocolatey oak. Very ripe and impressively dense, showing compelling depth to its lush dark berry and graphite flavors. A sexy sugar/acid balance gives this sharply delineated wine very good early balance but its powerfully structured, very long finish suggests that it will be long-lived. Big tannins are wonderfully smooth for the vintage. 95+

A dense and layered wine with lots of ripe and sweet fruit. Loads of currants, plums and tar. This is concentrated and almost jammy with velvety tannins. Powerful. Chewy. Try in 2020.
