94 Points Wine Advocate... This has a relatively light but feminine bouquet, earthy notes at first, later tightly coiled blackberry and cedar, briary and pencil box. The palate is medium-bodied with a succulent entry that marries beautifully with the fine tannins and depth of flavour. This is more primal than its peers, but wonderful delineation and purity with a caressing, silky smooth finish. Utterly seductive, this Pichon Baron is finally coming into its own.
93 Points Robert Parker... A very successful effort for this vintage in the Medoc, this deep ruby/purple coloured Pauillac exhibits class, nobility and breed along with black currant liqueur, liquorice, and incense notes. Sweet, expansive, fleshy, and medium to full-bodied, with good structure, ripe tannin, and a long, 30-35 second finish, it can be enjoyed now.
