Château Pichon-Longueville Baron Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Parker review: A spectacular effort, this is a profound Pichon Baron and clearly my favorite<br/>vintage of this wine since the 1989 and 1990. An inky purple color offers up<br/>notes of barbecue spices intermixed with new saddle leather, creme de cassis,<br/>melted licorice, creosote, and a hint of vanilla. The wine is full-bodied,<br/>tremendously concentrated, with sweet tannin and a seamless finish that goes on<br/>for close to one minute. This wine has great purity, tremendous texture, and<br/>fabulous upside potential. This is a prodigious 2000! <br/>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Apr 03)

Another French wine which was introduced to me by my brother in law, who got me hooked on Lynch Bages. He grew up in Bordeaux, so he should know. I tried this with him in Asia at a wine tasting and it was my favorite of the night. And, because of its price, is a bottle I might actually buy myself on a regular basis.

This wine requires several hours of decanting but it is so worth the wait. I thought the first sip after 2 hours was solid. 2 hours later it was absolutely phenomenal. Wonderfully smooth with a long, beautiful finish. There are hints of fruit and smokey vanilla both in the smell and taste. A truly impressive wine.

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.

Fantastic aromas of currants, berries and hints of minerals. Cool and sleek. Full-bodied, with a lovely underbelly of ripe fruit and medium, silky tannins. Best Pichon Baron I have tasted since 1990... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Pichon-Longueville Baron 750ml

Very dark ruby color. Beautiful aromas of berries, minerals, cherries and chocolate. Full-bodied, with very rich yet ripe tannins and a long, long tobacco, chery, berry aftertaste. Goes on and on. Always been superb; in fact, it keeps getting better. Drink now through 2015.

A definitive Pauillac, the dense purple-colored 1998 Pichon-Baron offers up a sweet bouquet of licorice, smoke, asphalt, blackberries, and creme de cassis. In the mouth, the wine is elegant rather than full-blown, with medium body, sweet fruit, nice texture on the attack and mid-palate, and moderate tannin in the long finish. No, this is not as profound as the 1996, 1990, or 1989, but it is an outstanding effort. Anticipated maturity: 2006ndash;2020.

Fantastic aromas of currants, berries and hints of minerals. Cool and sleek. Full-bodied, with a lovely underbelly of ripe fruit and medium, silky tannins. Most impressive Pichon Baron that I have tasted since 1990. Best after 2010.

An opaque purple color and sweet, toasty, chocolatey, blackcurrant aromas are followed by a wine with outstanding richness, an impressive, fleshy, medium to full-bodied personality, and fine length. The 1995 is not as flamboyant as the remarkable 1990, or as concentrated as the massive 1989, but this is a beautifully made, outstanding wine that recalls the 1988 in its weight and texture. Anticipated maturity: 2002ndash;2020.

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.
