Château Pichon-Longueville Baron:

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.

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.

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.

Red-ruby. Restrained, nuanced nose combines plum, tobacco and dusty minerality. Intensely flavored, delineated and minerally, with red berry fruit complicated by tobacco and currant leaf. I might have picked this for a Graves. Finishes with tooth-coating tannins. A good showing today.

Wow. This shows so much ripe fruit and berry character with just the right hint of lead pencil and spice. Full-bodied and very chewy. Big and powerful. Beautiful wine. Superb. Best after 2012.

hellip;itrsquo;s a friendly wine with lovely cassis and berry aromas and flavors, medium body and a light fruity finish. Drink now.

This firmer vintage smells and tastes of the warmth coming off the polished stones of the vineyard. All its elements are in balance, yet theyandrsquo;re expressed in stoniness rather than in separate compartments of juicy red currant fruit pressed and dried, of black cherry skin tannins. Itandrsquo;s the firm, aristocratic structure that comes first, then the perception of plenty of flesh underneath to fill it. And it keeps getting juicier with air. A andrsquo;98 for long-term cellaring.
