Possessing full-bodied richness, a huge, unctuous mid-palate, and building tannin, it shows the purity, grandeur, and precision that makes this vintage so remarkable. Hide bottles for another 4-5 years, count yourself lucky, and enjoy bottles over the following 2-3 decades.

Stunning! Yes, it is young and primary. But the fruit really coats your palate hitting you with wave after wave of rich, fat, juicy, pure, ripe, concentrated berries that taste, feel and smell great! This is a future... Stunning! Yes, it is young and primary.

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. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

A truly great vintage in Bordeaux, with wines replete with tannin, acidity, and an almost extreme ripeness. 2010 is often seen as level-pegging with the fleshier 2009s, but at this estate 2010 is ahead by more than a whisker. The nose is reserved, with blackcurrant and chocolate aromas, brooding but intensely ripe. The palate is very rich, opulent and full-bodied, with massive but ripe tannins. Powerful, taut and muscular, it's crackling with tension -the fruit is not yet fully expressive, but it's just beneath the dense but velvety surface. Exceptional length.

It ranks with the 2009 and, with its tannins, is sure to age longer than that vintage. Solidly structured, powerful and dense, with fruit promised for the future, it succeeds with its weight and great concentration.

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

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.

The 2010 Pichon-Baron has a surly, backward and uncompromising bouquet of layers of black fruit, smoke and melted tar. It feels curmudgeonly compared to the 2009, which one expects, yet I wonder if it will always remain that way. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, great depth, huge grip in the mouth and intense mineralité toward the persistent finish. But this might be a rare case where the finesse of the 2009 shades the 2010. It will need a decade in the bottle and maybe then I will be proven wrong. -- Neal Martin

The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannins, very fine acidity, a gentle grip with very composed, lightly spiced finish. This is a relatively understated wine within its group, sophisticated and classy. It has closed down a little since I last tasted it, hence the slightly lower score, but expect that to rise in the future.

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.
