International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 78

Good red-ruby color. Black cherry, beefsteak tomato and licorice scents are currently dominated by nutty, cedary oak; less nuanced than the '96, even allowing for the bottling. Sweet entry, then good intensity of flavor, with the cassis fruit complicated by the nutty note. A bit four-square compared to the '96, yet not as dense or refined. Substantial tannins are in balance with the wine.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 115

A stylish, elegant, more restrained style of Pichon Baron, with less obvious new oak than usual, this deep ruby/purple-colored wine offers a pure black currant-scented nose with subtle aromas of coffee and smoky toasty oak. In the mouth, the wine displays less weight and muscle than the 1996, but it offers suave, elegant, rich fruit presented in a medium to full-bodied, surprisingly lush style.

A balanced, early-drinking red. Beautiful blackberry and mineral aromas. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium finish.

Ripe blackberry, black cherry and red currant fruit. Nice spiciness to the fruit. Very soft and voluptuous. Sexier than the Lynch-Bages. Classic Bordeaux notes of chalk, leather and earth. Supple, lengthy finish. This was a crowd favorite.

(from magnum) Dark rich ruby to mahogany red color; rich, almost exotic nose of black fruit, spice, haberdashery, and smoky meat; equally rich on the palate; complex and elegant; med.-full bodied; soft integrated tannins; lush yet with good backbone; fully mature & drinking extremely well now but should hold for several more years. Excellent.

(tasted several days ago): Classic excellent Bordeaux, and delicious with a hearty meal. Not a lot of nuance or mystery, but great to drink.
