2004 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

SKU #1031982 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This is a great, great 2004 – a huge success for Christian Seely in a more challenging growing season than the ensuing one. A soaring blackberry, blueberry, cedar and wild strawberry nose with a touch of violets. Very fine tannins on the full-bodied palate, superb focus, elegant and feminine with a touch of burst toast and graphite on the finish. Great persistency. Quintessential Pauillac – at its finest. (NM) Inner quote mark (9/2009)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark An intensely powerful, smooth wine, in a style that has an instant, sexy appeal. But it's not just surface glamour, there is a solid texture, layering the dusty tannins with rich black plums, red berries and vanilla. (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2007)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2004 Pichon-Baron has a lilting bouquet of blackberry, wild strawberry, rose petals and dried herbs, conservative in style but clean and precise. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin, and quite sappy in the mouth. This 2004 has plenty of personality and sports an attractive estuarine personality, showing traces of brine and seaweed toward the fresh, bright, vivid finish. It should drink well for many years. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark The sleek texture of this wine is built on a confit of ripe fruit and satin-rich tannin. It's succulent, harmonious and potent, with berry-skin flavors. Rather than freshness, there's a green-herb and tart-cherry element that provides an edge to the flavor. A textural pleasure, and a grand wine to cellar ten years or more. Inner quote mark (10/2007)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A very large crop in 2004 led to fears of dilution, and while some wines are already near their peak, the best are still going strong. The nose here is sweet and charming, with blackcurrant and black cherry aromas. It's fresh and sleek, silky and poised, and while concentrated it has less weight and depth than the great years. It has impeccable balance and stylishness, however, and is starting to drink well. It's not a heavyweight, but it's both enjoyable and serious, with a long finish. (SB) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Sweet tobacco and plums with just a hint of prunes. Fascinating nose. Full body with velvety tannins, tangy acidity and a fresh finish. Just right now. Savory and delicious. Inner quote mark (7/2013)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark A bit of evolution at the rim. Marine notes on the nose – oyster shells? Clearly still evolving (more youthful than the Pavillon Rouge 2004 served alongside it) with good concentration and the tannins just about to melt into the background. Lightly dusty on the slightly dry end. Pretty smart and classic Pauillac. Needs food. 17+/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2018)

This stood out as an absolute star of the vintage at two events last month. It is complex and complete, showing impeccable balance between fruit and mineral, power and finesse, depth and freshness and an overall symmetry that is remarkable. OUTSTANDING!
