Decanter, December 2021

Yet another nose with standout freshness, even delicacy, but still quite youthful, mingling black fruit, spices, and spring flowers. A bit massive and still tightly wound on the palate, the wine has impressive tannic...

jebdunnuck.com, November 2017

Reminding me of the 1990, the 2015 Château Pichon Baron is a sensational bottle of wine made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot that spent 18 months in 80% new French oak. Boasting a deep purple color as well as...

Wine Enthusiast, February 2018

This is one of the great successes of this vintage. It is generous and rich while also solid and structured. The combination of the essence of black currant and the elegant tannic structure are superb. This is a wine for...

TheWineCellarInsider.com, July 2022

Still deeply colored, the wine is loaded with seemingly, endless layers of supple-textured, creamy, vibrant, blackberries, currants, and black plums. All of this is complicated by cigar box, wet earth, cedar, tobacco...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, February 2018

The Wine Independent, November 2022

A blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Merlot, the 2015 Pichon Baron is deep garnet in color. It comes bounding out of the glass with eager-to-please scents of black cherry compote, blueberry pie, and creme de cassis...

Vinous, July 2019

The 2015 Pichon-Baron has an engaging, complex bouquet of blackberry, cedar, mint and graphite, demonstrating more cohesion and more conviction than its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and extremely...

jamessuckling.com, April 2021

Blackberries, sweet tobacco, incense and currants. Aromatic. Medium to full body and firm, sleek tannins. Racy and refined. Shows lovely balance and finesse. Pretty now, but needs another three or four years of bottle...

janeanson.com, December 2021

Plum, damson, cassis and rosebud notes curl out of the glass immediately. The texture deepens and widens through the mid palate, with grilled bacon, cocoa bean, espresso, fig, grilled cedar, dense and concentrated, with a...

Wine Spectator, March 2018

A juicy, well-knit style, with energetic plum and black currant compote notes that are studded with anise and black tea accents. Has a muscular edge through the finish, with brambly grip holding sway for now. There's more...
