Slightly earthy, featuring tobacco, cigar box and dark fruits. Full-bodied, offering supervelvety tannins and a long, rich finish. Plenty of subtle things are going on here in the glass, with lots of wonderful fruit underneath. Canrsquo;t wait on this. Showing beautifully now. Better than ever. rsquo;89/rsquo;99 Bordeaux blind retrospective.

In 2003, Pichon-Baron produced its highest-scoring wine since its 1989 (98 points), which was Wine Spectatorrsquo;s Wine of the Year in 1992. The rsquo;03 shows gobs of ripe fruit, and the price is a lot less intimidating than those of the chateaursquo;s first-growth Pauillac neighbors. Managing director Christian Seely called Pichon-Baron a ldquo;sleeping beautyrdquo; when AXA Millesimes bought it in 1986. Thanks to significant investments in the vineyards and the chai, the beauty has been awake for some time now.

A muscular, fleshy, full-throttle wine, packed with plum,currant and anise flavors. Perhaps a bit hot on the finish, but generous and concentrated, with nicely integrated tannins; balanced overall for the long haul. Give it until at least 1999 to 2005 for optimum enjoyment.

Very distinctive, bursting with earthy, smoky berry flavors and notes of tar and mineral. The tannins are full and velvety. It delivers a lot, and has a long, firm finish. Almost outstanding.

Lovely aromas of toasted oak, berries and currants with a hint of mint. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a delicate, fruity aftertaste. Very good. Best after 2004.

Good ruby-red color. Black cherry, beefsteak tomato and licorice scents are currently dominated by nutty, cedary oak; less nuanced than the rsquo;96, even allowing for the bottling. Sweet entry, then good intensity of flavor, with the cassis fruit complicated by the nutty note. A bit four-square compared to the rsquo;96, yet not as dense or refined. Substantial tannins are in balance with the wine.

A very successful effort for this vintage in the Medoc, this deep ruby/purple-colored Pauillac exhibits class/nobility/breed along with black currant liqueur, licorice, and incense notes. Sweet, expansive, fleshy, and medium to full-bodied, with good structure, ripe tannin, and a long, 30ndash;35 second finish, it can be drunk now, but will be even better in 2ndash;3 years; it will last for 12ndash;15 years. I had this wine three separate times out of bottle, and it is performing significantly better than it did from cask.
