Critical Acclaim

"Administrator Christian Seeley thinks the 2010 is the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron he has ever made, equaling some of the estate’s colossal wines from vintages such as 1989 and 1990. It was certainly showing well when I stopped by the chateau in January. Opaque purple, with loads of charcoal, licorice, incense and some exotic Asian spices along with abundant cassis liqueur, blackberry and hints of roasted coffee and spring flowers, it is full-bodied and opulent, with relatively high tannins, but they have sweetened up considerably and seem less aggressive than they did from barrel. The oak is clearly pushed to the background by the wine’s wealth of fruit, glycerin and full-bodied texture. This sensational Pichon Longueville Baron needs 5-6 years of cellaring, and should keep 30+ years.

"A big, smoky and juicy wine, with strong fruit overriding its acidity and complex tannins. Black currants are ripe and intense, resulting in a beautiful as well as severely structured wine.

"79% cabernet sauvignon and 21% merlot; 80% new oak; 85 IPT; 3.71 pH; 13.7% alcohol; a 50% selection for the grand vin Opaque purple-ruby. Blackcurrant and minty aromas are complicated by coffee and gunflint on the deep, reticent nose. Silky in texture and ripe, with very good complexity to the deep, brooding blackberry, cassis and pepper flavors. This multilayered, very rich wine offers outstanding mid-palate concentration of fruit and sneaky sweetness, finishing fresh and very long, with mounting but polished tannins. Should age extremely well) I'd plan to drink it from 2022 through 2045.
Barrel Sample: 93-96 Points "

"Solidly built, with a roasted edge to the steeped fig, blackberry and black currant flavors, quickly followed by brambly tannins and notes of bay leaf and espresso. Stays dark and tarry through the finish, with superb drive and verve. Best from 2017 through 2030. "
95 Points

"A dense and layered wine with lots of ripe and sweet fruit. Loads of currants, plums and tar. This is concentrated and almost jammy with velvety tannins. Powerful. Chewy. Try in 2020."
