External Reviews for Domaine Baron
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: 2006-2020.
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: 2008-2028.
A sexy, opulent and hedonistic Pichon-Baron, the 1999's dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by a low acid wine with a silky texture and good fleshiness. It offers jammy black fruits intermixed with licorice, incense, leather, and pain grille. Opulent and fat, it will be drinkable upon release, and last for 16-18 years.
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.
Good full red-ruby. Complex nose combines plum, mocha, minerals, tobacco and burnished oak. A bit tight on entry, then expands and explodes toward the back, showing dense, insinuating flavors of black fruits and licorice. Chewy, sharply delineated Pichon-Baron with excellent underlying backbone and broad, palate-coating tannins. An outstanding vintage for this estate.
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.
Other review:<br/>Tasted at the London Pichon-Baron off-line. Always one of the best 2003s, perhaps like Latour it beautifully marries Bordeaux austerity with the voluptuousness lent by the growing season. Lovely rounded black cherries, boysenberry and creme de cassis on the nose. The palate is full-bodied with sensuous, rounded tannins, lower acidity but still balanced, very pure with just a touch of graphite on the aftertaste. Delicious! Drink 2011-2025. <br/>Neal Martin - Wine Journal
