(2010 Vintage) Château Pichon Baron is the product of very stringent selection from the finest terroirs: a Pauillac Grand Vin classed as a Second Cru in the 1855 ranking system. Its great vintages are wines with an exceptionally long finish, displaying truly regal power and characteristically noble finesse and elegance. Designed for connoisseurs and collectors of fine wines, Château Pichon Baron is a wine to be enjoyed in moments when pleasure is paramount, such as a meal shared with close friends and family. Tasting provides a complex and potent sensory experience: power, structure, depth, notes of ripe black fruit, purity and integrity. Château Pichon Baron can be cellared for over 40 years, but will already be a pleasure to drink within 5 to 7 years.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2005 Vintage) One of the most memorable bottlings of our tastings of the 2005 Bordeaux, this wonderfully extracted effort captures all of the complexity and very deep curranty fruit for which the Pauillac appellation is justly revered, and it does so with a remarkable sense of balance and keen composition. It is clearly not one for the impatient, and its ample tannin requires upward of a decade before taming comes, but there are no questions at all about the depth of its fruity substance and its admirable stuf...
International Wine Cellar(2005 Vintage) Dark red-ruby. Multidimensional nose offers deep aromas of currant, cedar, coffee, tobacco and minerals. The palate offers a rare combination of sweetness, energy and depth, with superb grip and a layered texture to the flavors of plum, cedar, tobacco and minerals. The finish features sweet, noble tannins and outstanding length. I find this more complete and ultimately more exciting than the 2003, but this will need at least a decade of cellaring.

Decanter(1986 Vintage) Rating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Fine bouquet, with ripe, even caramely fruit. Fruit dominates.
