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

Delicious yet still young and tight, needs more time to mature and open up. Lots of chocolate, coffee, black fruits, cedar wood, earth, full body, bold tannins, nice fruit, lovely acidity and a long delicious finish. My score 92, drink to 2035

Lush and approachable. More fruit forward than its neighbors.

A bit young but very delicious after almost 2 hours of drinking & breathing. Intense ruby color with very nice aromas of black fruits, tobacco, & oak on the nose. Full-bodied and follows by very delicious flavors of blackberry, blackcurrant, and mocha on the palate. Solid structure, firm & round mouthfeel, medium acidity, load of silky tannins, and sumptuous & long aftertaste at the end.

Delicious. Tour guide at Chateau Pichon Baron was surprised at how good it was tasting. Deep fruit but very balanced acidity

Classic profile but a touch dilute.

Excellent, a little tight from a cold vintage but offering plenty of complexity
