Cellar Selection

Outer quote mark This is a solid, concentrated wine from a reliable chateau. It has weight and power, with rich black fruits balanced with fresh acidity. Touches of bitter extraction and wood aging are likely to integrate as the wine ages. It should develop into an impressive and powerful wine. Drink from 2018. Inner quote mark (2/2014)

92-93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very pretty aromas of currants and blueberries with hints of flowers. Full body with silky tannins and a fruity finish. Refined. Very polished tannins. Inner quote mark (4/2012)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows a taut feel for now, with lots of cassis and blackberry fruit, lined with iron and bramble notes. Dark and well-toasted yet integrated overall, this should stretch out after moderate cellaring, as there's an ample core of dark, fleshy fruit. Best from 2016 through 2028. Inner quote mark (3/2014)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Its bigger, more famous sibling, the 2011 Pichon Longueville Baron exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, an opulent mouthfeel for a 2011, silky tannins and no hard edges. Medium-bodied and well-endowed, it is a major success in this vintage. It should hit its stride in 3-4 years and last for 15+. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2014)

Outer quote mark So nice to smell fruit and not oak. Pure, dark fruit, not overly sweet. Oak shows its spicy sweetness on the palate. Gentle, harmonious, finishing long and dry. Very fine, smooth texture. You could almost drink it now. 17/20 points. Drink 2019 - 2032. (JH) Inner quote mark (10/2013)
