Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
98

98pts - Revealing incredible quality and performing better than it did from barrel, the 2009 appears to be the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron since the 1990 and 1989. An amazing opaque blue/purple color is followed by scents of spring flowers, graphite, smoky charcoal, incense, blackberries, blueberries and hints of coffee and chocolate. Incredibly intense, pure and flawlessly constructed with extravagant layers of fruit and richness, this offering has developed beautifully under the management of Christian Seeley. It is a voluptuous, opulent Pichon Longueville Baron that may eclipse anything they have made in the past. This brilliant wine should be at its peak between 2018 and 2045.

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #199, Feb 2012)

96pts - The 2009 Pichon-Longueville Baron has a medium to deep garnet color and a very meaty/savory nose over a core of sweaty leather, baked blackberries and plums with notions of crème de cassis, sautéed herbs and black olives coming through with coaxing. Full, rich, concentrated and decadently fruited in the mouth, the palate has beautifully plush tannins and an herbal lift on the long finish.Lisa Perrotti-Brown, March 2019

The 2009 Pichon-Baron replicates its epic performance at the vertical tasted last year. It has one of the finest bouquets among the group of Pauillac with copious blackberry, mint, melted tar and graphite notes, fresh and supremely well focused. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, very well judged acidity. Harmonious with plenty of tobacco and pencil lead infused black fruit towards the persistent finish. Awesome. - vinous.com, March 2019

[66CS/33M] Dense ripe blackberry / blackcurrant and subtle mineral nose; promises a wonderful cassis bouquet! Great scope and range just to smell. Beautifully balanced, supple yet fresh, rich and finely tannic wine, an effortless grand scale balance; sweetly ripe fruit, fresh definition, no hard edges; long, close wrought, gravelly, mouthcoating, gently spicy, resonantly aromatic. A very fine, aristocratic Baron with great fruit and mineral length. Probably its finest wine for a couple of generations. 2020-40+

Bold, smoky and chocolatey, this is a concentrated and massive wine for the Medoc, the alcohol showing slightly at the bold warm finish. Where is that T-bone steak? Drink or hold. (Horizontal Tasting, London, 2019) - Stuart Pigott, jamessuckling.com, March 2019
