A little bit stinky at the front. Still very deep, rich and young. Perhaps Brett at the front is taking a bit of the charm and subtlety off this but the fruit is still there. Intense stuff.

Rocking vintage. Rich, concentrated and great structure.

Pretty focused with plenty of backbone. Pepper and leather but not a ton of fruit coming through. Pretty good and could surprise in years to come.

Love this wine! I called it a 96 pichon but I thought it was lalande. Nevertheless it was unmistakably 90s pauillac in every way. Beautiful wine. Makes me realize how much I love Bordeaux

In an awkward place right now - but the creaminess from Malo braced up against the stewed dark fruits is a thought piece on what exactly this wine could become.

This is a stunning pichon, silky, full of black fruit, smooth. Fantastic to drink now but maybe better in 3 to 5 years.

The 2015 Pichon-Baron
has an engaging, complex bouquet of blackberry, cedar, mint and graphite, demonstrating more cohesion and more conviction than its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and extremely well-judged acidity that imbues
this Pauillac with a sense of effortlessness and class lacking in some of its peers. A stunning 2015 and one of the greatest releases from the estate. Tasted
blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. (Neal Martin, Vinous, July 2019)

Visiting again this splendid Paulliac from the 2011 vintage. 2011 vintage was labeled as mediocre in Bordeaux and this lovely wine showed that it is actually a classic vintage with some great wines, so trust the chateau not only the vintage. The nose is tempting with notes if coffee, earth, oak, cassis, black fruits and hints of chocolate, the body is full with round tannins, acidity is splendid and finish is long. My score 92, drink to 2026, perhaps longer
