K&L Notes

93-95 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2018 Pichon-Baron is matured for 18 months in 80% new oak. It has a comparatively high-toned bouquet compared to recent vintages, featuring black cherries, blueberry, cedar and mint, although I think it needs to express more Pichon-Baron DNA. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannins creating a huge frame that lacquers the mouth. This is almost a burly Pauillac, not muscular but very dense, though I would like to see more finesse on the finish by the time of bottling, and then it may warrant a higher score. I would use Christian Seely’s descriptor of the vintage: untamed." (11/2019)

    This is an incredible wine. The warmth of the vintage is evident with powerful dark cherry and blackberry fruit, yet there’s plenty of delicate pencil-lead mineral tones and licorice. The fruit is balanced and restrained through the palate, then on the finish it soars, leaving you to contemplate the array of flavors you just tasted for over a minute.

    Big, primary black fruit nose and a big rich palate impression made me think that I could have mistaken this blind for a Monte Bello, but the clean gravel and pencil lead minerality of Pauillac underneath make this inimitably Bordeaux. This is a hedonistic style for sure, but still has the freshness to dance with food in the future.

    Very tight and concentrated with an almost a chewy texture, this wine shows flavors of black licorice combined with red cherry and berry fruit. Lots of tannin and structure. Another wine for the cellar 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot
