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.

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.

A spectacular effort, this is a profound Pichon Baron and clearly my favorite vintage of this wine since the 1989 and 1990. An inky purple color offers up notes of barbecue spices intermixed with new saddle leather, creme de cassis, melted licorice, creosote, and a hint of vanilla. The wine is full-bodied, tremendously concentrated, with sweet tannin and a seamless finish that goes on for close to one minute. This wine has great purity, tremendous texture, and fabulous upside potential. This is a prodigious 2000! Anticipated maturity: 2008andndash;2028.

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.

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.

I have never tasted a more compelling Pichon-Longueville-Baron. The huge aroma of roasted blackcurrants and spicy oak is followed by a wine that is packed to the brim with super-ripe, unctuous fruit. The acid is low, but the tannin level is extremely high, with the tannins much more noticeable than they were last spring. This is one of the most concentrated wines of the vintage, with a texture unlike anything I have ever experienced in Bordeauxhellip; I adored it. Anticipated maturity: 1996ndash;2000.

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.
