98 Points - Decanter Magazine:
"Now part of the AXA Millésimes group, Pichon Baron was founded in the late 17th century. Its grand vin is sourced from the very oldest vines on the estate, with each plot fermented separately. With 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot, this was aged for 18 months – 80% in new barrels. Georgie Hindle: Floral, sweetly scented raspberries on the nose with some milk chocolate aromas. Broad-shouldered but graceful too. Wow, this is excellent. Vincenzo Arnese: Poised and balanced. The nose is ripe and concentrated with notes of prune, dark cherry and blackcurrant, cola and liquorice. Good body and rich, integrated tannins. Fantastic long finish. Great potential. Andy Howard MW: Not at all showy, this is a wine to give time to. Wonderful dark fruit on the palate with floral notes, elegant tannins and integrated oak. A classic Pauillac, which is remarkable in the context of 2017 overall." - (Feb 2022)

96 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot aged 18 months in 80% new French oak, the 2017 Chateau Pichon-Longueville Baron sports a vivid purple hue as well as gorgeous notes of creme de cassis and black raspberry fruits interwoven with classic Pauillac lead pencil, crushed rocks, chocolate, and violet notes. Full-bodied and concentrated, yet elegant and seamless, it has remarkable purity, flawless tannins, beautifully integrated acidity, and a great finish. It's going to hit the early stages of prime drinking in 7-8 years and cruise for 20-25 years or more. (Drink between 2027-2052)" - (Feb 2020)

95 Points - James Suckling:

"The currants, blackberries and spices are very pretty here on the nose. The palate is medium-to full-bodied with round, compact tannins and a fresh, linear finish. Cool and racy. Strong and focused. Drink after 2023." - (Dec 2019)

94+ Points - Vinous Magazine:

"The 2017 Pichon-Baron has developed into a potent wine, even by its own standards. Black cherry, plum, chocolate, grilled herbs, licorice, new leather and spice all flesh out in a succulent Pauillac that shows the racier personality of the year. In the glass, Pichon is dark, racy and sumptuous as it so often is, with terrific density and explosive energy. Today, I see less of the aromatic brilliance the wine showed en primeur; perhaps that will come with time. The 2017 spent 18 months in 80% new oak. (Drink between 2025-2042)" - Antonio Galloni (Mar 2020)
