93 points "((79% cabernet sauvignon and 21% merlot; 80% new oak; 85 IPT; 3.71 pH; 13.7% alcohol; a 50% selection for the grand vin Opaque purple-ruby. Blackcurrant and minty aromas are complicated by coffee and gunflint on the deep, reticent nose. Silky in texture and ripe, with very good complexity to the deep, brooding blackberry, cassis and pepper flavors. This multilayered, very rich wine offers outstanding mid-palate concentration of fruit and sneaky sweetness, finishing fresh and very long, with mounting but polished tannins. Should age extremely well) I'd plan to drink it from 2022 through 2045. 93-96 points" Best 2022-2045

98 points "98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Revealing incredible quality and performing better than it did from barrel, the 2009 appears to be the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron since the 1990 and 1989. An amazing opaque blue/purple color is followed by scents of spring flowers, graphite, smoky charcoal, incense, blackberries, blueberries and hints of coffee and chocolate. Incredibly intense, pure and flawlessly constructed with extravagant layers of fruit and richness, this offering has developed beautifully under the management of Christian Seeley. It is a voluptuous, opulent Pichon Longueville Baron that may eclipse anything they have made in the past. This brilliant wine should be at its peak between 2018 and 2045. (2/ 2012) " Best 2018-2045

4 stars "Black-red, marvellous expression of very ripe Cabernet Sauvignon, with quite a bit of lifted florality over the cassis, intense fruit restrained and polished by finely grained tannins. Drink 2012-40. (18.5 points)" Best 2012-2040
