K&L Notes

95pts Neal Martin: "The 2010 Pichon-Baron has a surly, backward and uncompromising bouquet of layers of black fruit, smoke and melted tar. It feels curmudgeonly compared to the 2009, which one expects, yet I wonder if it will always remain that way. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, great depth, huge grip in the mouth and intense mineralité toward the persistent finish. But this might be a rare case where the finesse of the 2009 shades the 2010. It will need a decade in the bottle and maybe then I will be proven wrong. Tasted at the Pichon-Baron vertical at the château." (01/2019)

    The last time I tasted this wine was on release in 2013 - a wine full of depth and terrific potential, but massive and structured like many a great 2010. Now, five years on, it is starting to unfurl into something terrific. On the nose there is some secondary notes underneath layers of deep red and black fruit, baking spices, vanilla, and graphite. The palate shows more primary notes of pure black fruit, super-fine tannin, and a wonderfully long finish. It reminded me a bit of their 2000 and could easily resemble it in the next 10-15 years, perhaps with a bit more purity and focus.
