Pichon Baron is considered as being amongst the top of its class and has the reputation to be deeper and more structured than Pichon Lalande.
Made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, Pichon Baron has intense aromas of cassis, blackcurrants, tobacco, leather and roasted coffee. With good tannin and plenty of ripe fruits, it is medium to full body and extremely complex.
Full ruby-red. Pungent, high-pitched aromas of blackberry, cassis, minerals, bitter chocolate and mocha. Suave, fine-grained and densely packed, with lovely violet lift to its concentrated dark fruit and mineral flavors. Juicy acidity and serious building tannins give this very young wine terrific backbone for aging. Really spreads out to saturate the palate.- 92 pts Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar
