Super lush. Strawberry and deep plum. Blue fruit. Very soft and present. On the palate lush and rich but very pure. Really excellent

Still quite youthful (should’ve decanted!). But showing well. Dark fruit aromas w typical spiced black currant flavors. Big but not cumbersome. Very elegant. It got even better as it opened up. A real treat

This is really good. Soft, lush, raspberry fruit. A deep inky intensity but everything is balanced and perfectly in place. H this is a really good wine. Quite a surprise.

Deep, lots of structure. Excellent concentration. Looonnng finish. Cassis, shoe polish, black fruits, wet tobacco, black licorice. Interestingly, much more evolved 24 hours later.

This Pichon-Baron was in the earliest peak of its window, pure ✏️ and graphite cigar box nose, rich, intense, leading cassis, tar and a mineral and wonderfully tannic trip over the palate and a long, 40 second finish that was reminiscent dry red clay. Good news: I have 11 more in the case I cracked last night. Bad news: I’ll be in my 60’s before these open up and the secondary stuff really starts to show.

My contribution as part of a left bank vs right bank Bordeaux theme, with all wines tasted blind.

I gave this a double decant of about 3hrs, and I have to say, it was beautifully open and accessible. The power of the vintage comes through on both the nose and palate. Aromatically, it revealed fresh potpourri, cherry, currant pipe tobacco, bay leaf, and leather. It sports a beautiful texture on the palate with a dense mid palate, wrapped in graphite, fleshy black cherries, more notes of tobacco and bold mocha at the finish. This should drink in this delicious window for 5-7yrs before evolving, but is only getting better.
