2012 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

SKU #1238353 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A pretty core of ripe-berry, currant and mineral character to this red with a full body, silky tannins and a fresh finish to add. Creamy texture. Better in 2017. Inner quote mark (2/2015)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Pichon-Longueville Baron is wonderfully aromatic and textured in the glass. Scents of smoke, pipe tobacco and cedar meld into a core of intense dark fruit. Pliant and supple, but with considerable underlying structure, the 2012 is likely to drink well for the next two to three decades, perhaps longer, but it is also going to need at least a few years in bottle for the tannins to soften. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2016)

93 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Taking its accustomed place among the shining stars of its vintage regardless of commune or which side of Bordeaux a wine might claim as home, this deeply drawn effort shows more than enough concentration and fruity depth to keep its sterling track record intact. It is very rich and refined at one and the same time, and its generosity comes with no loss of balance or poise. While its virtues are clear now, it begs for patience and has the look of the rare wine that will continue to fascinate for decades down the line. Inner quote mark (6/2015)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark As for the big sibling, the 2012 Pichon Baron (80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot) probably has the most saturated purple color of the Pauillacs. Its structure is apparent, and the wine offers a wealth of blackcurrant fruit interwoven with licorice, graphite, and background toasty oak. Full-bodied, opulent and moderately tannic, this wine is approachable now because of its low acidity, but promises to age beautifully for 20+ years. This is another great classic from Pichon Baron. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This has a lively spine of briar that pumps through the core of cassis and plum fruit, while anise and sweet tobacco notes fill in on the finish. Shows a twinge of plum skin at the end, but delivers more than enough flesh and drive overall. A solid effort. Best from 2017 through 2027. (JM) Inner quote mark (2/2015)
