Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

A brilliant effort, this 2003 displays a vigorous, intact, deep blue/purple color as well as notes of scorched earth, barbecue spices, incense, creme de cassis and cedarwood. Long, lush, medium to full-bodied, round and generous, this opulent Pauillac can be drunk now and over the next 5-8 years.
(WA#214, Aug 2014)


This is a brilliantly run property year in and year out, and especially since the mid- to late 1980s has produced one of the top four or five wines made in Pauillac in virtually every vintage. With 13.4% alcohol, the 2003 is one of the most powerful efforts this chateau has ever made. Its dense purple color is accompanied by sweet, jammy creme de cassis notes intermixed with roasted herbs, smoked meats, and chocolate. Although ripe, dense, full-bodied, and moderately tannic, it is silky (because of its low acidity and high glycerin) as well as accessible. It should firm up in the bottle, and be at its peak between 2008-2025.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index’s “10-Year On” tasting in London. The Pichon Baron ’03 has a well-defined bouquet with composed blackberry, briary, graphite and a subtle note of mint. It has calmed down in recent years having lost its puppy fat. The palate is medium-bodied with a ripe gamey entry. There is a pastel like purity here, actually more like Pichon-Lalande in style towards the pointed, meat-tinged finish. This has always been a very commendable Pauillac from Mr. Seely and his team. Tasted March 2013.
