Critics Ratings

‘The 2000 Château Pichon Baron is just getting better and better and better. This is a millennial Left Bank with the keys to the top drawer. It has an incredibly precise, mineral-driven bouquet with intense black fruit infused with cedar and graphite scents. It just reeks of Pauillac in an almost uncompromising, yet compelling manner. The palate is structured, stylish and effortless, extraordinarily pure and unerringly youthful. This is a Pichon Baron saying, "You ain't seen nothing yet." You could broach this now if you wanted, but the clever people will wisely bunker this for another decade and gloat from 2025 onward.’ - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 97/100 (Jan 2016)

‘Rock-solid, with a block of currant, fig and blackberry paste notes forming the core, while youthful brambly-edged grip still holds sway throughout. Lots of enticing licorice root and sweet tobacco flavours wait in reserve, and there's a nice lift from a light savoury hint at the very end. Still has a ways to go. Drink now through 2028.’ - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 94/100 (Dec 2015)
