K&L Notes

97 points Neal Martin: "The 2015 Pichon-Longueville Baron was a superlative wine from barrel and I have no reason to change that view now that it is in bottle. It possesses and extraordinarily pure but intense bouquet with blackberry, bilberry, crushed stone and graphite that seem to gain intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin, great depth and cohesion, gently gripping the mouth although not as tannic or as masculine as I was anticipating, exhibiting great finesse on the finish. This is certainly within first growth quality. Anticipated maturity: 2022 - 2050." (02/2018)

    This is a lush mouth coating wine; hints of coco and vanilla bean in the nose is followed by fleshy fruit that feels broad in the mouth and carries through to the finish; there are no holes in this wine; the tannins are firm but ripe and are hidden by the copious amount of fruit. This is a very solid effort.

    **Don’t Miss** Deeply black fruited with notes of crème de cassis, black currant, lead pencil, graphite, and earth. This is intense and powerful yet the firm tannins are balanced with an intense core of fruit and purity. Classic proportion, rich, and masculine styled Pichon-Baron.

    77% CS and 23%M.Intense nose and powerful wine with lots of spice on the nose. Big boy that needs cellaring- but still sweet and sexy.Cassis aromas and a core of red fruit flavors on the palate. Easy to taste-reminds us of the great 2005. Bravo jean Rene.
    Drink from 2020 to 2040
