Potentially the best of all the Pauillacs in 2013 (along with Mouton Rothschild), Pichon Baron is dense purple to the rim, which is not typical in this vintage, and exhibits stunning creme de cassis notes along with licorice, forest floor and white flowers. It is medium-bodied, but very complete, with serious texture, impressive purity, depth and ripe tannins on the finish. This is another 2013 that tastes atypically full and impressive. The final blend from a tiny crop at Pichon Longueville Baron was 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Merlot. Drink it over the next 12-15 years. - WA, RP (8/2014)

Deep red-ruby. Perfumed nose offers enticing scents of dark cherry, tar, Oriental spices, licorice and violet. Very deep, pure, clean and rich on the palate, with flavors of black fruits and sexy spices lifted by aromatic notes of tobacco and ink. Finishes with youthfully chewy but noble tannins. This classic Pauillac displays an almost opulent mouthfeel that is very rare in this vintage. One of the stars of the Left Bank in 2013.- Ian D'Agata (05/2014)
