A spectacular effort, this is a profound Pichon Baron and clearly my favorite vintage of this wine since the 1989 and 1990. An inky purple color offers up notes of barbecue spices intermixed with new saddle leather, creme de cassis, melted licorice, creosote, and a hint of vanilla. The wine is full-bodied, tremendously concentrated, with sweet tannin and a seamless finish that goes on for close to one minute. This wine has great purity, tremendous texture, and fabulous upside potential. This is a prodigious 2000! Anticipated maturity: 2008-2028. Robert Parker

Almost everyone agreed that the 2000 Baron and Lalande were the best with half the group preferring the Baron and the other half Lalande. My wife, our friend Jorge and I were in the Lalande side.

The fruits run dry to juicy. Blackberries, dry black cherries, stewed black plum, expressions roast, herbs, black licorice, black cherry cola, tough leather, black tea, dry dark soil with stones, dry underbrush, touch of lead pencil shavings, solid acidity, tannins still need work but the structure, length, balance are excellent. However, I still won't open my for another 10-15 years. I had this a few years ago and it was seriously not ready. Good movement since then.

Drinking amazing. Unfortunately I didn't have the bottle on me, so the 2009 bottle will have to suffice. Fantastic juice, holding great balance and structure.

rougher than Lalande. Still a good wine but not great and not showing at its best.
