Although in the shadow of the millennial vintage, 2001s can be just as good (and on the right bank arguably better). This has a very deep, unevolved colour. The nose has sweet, charming, berry fruit with mint, vanilla and a hint of tobacco. It's rich and svelte on the palate, concentrated and juicy with fine underlying tannins. There's an intense sucrosity but with no trace of jamminess. The very long aftertaste is silky with fine, lifted acidity. This is a stylish wine that's now beginning to show maturity.

Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. 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. Tasted March 2011.

This is complex and beautiful now with liquorice and currant, with delicate sweet tobacco character on the nose and palate. Medium-to-full body with subtle, entrancing flavors and textures. So right now. Almost a soya undertone to the subtle fruit. A gorgeous claret at its peak.
Medium red-ruby. Complex nose melds currant, cedar, minerals and tobacco. Suave entry, then sweet, dense and supple, with harmonious acids giving lift to the wine's flavors. At once full and juicy. Finishes with very fine tannins and excellent length. (ST)
Dark-colored, with floral and lanolin aromas with hints of fruit. Full-bodied, with chunky tannins and a long finish. A bit short and austere. Needs bottle age to show its full potential. (JS)
Very dark crimson. A certain sweet evolution on the nose. Lovely polish and great weight plus freshness. Almost first-growth structure. Well done! Very complete and persistent. 18/20
