Red-ruby. Restrained, nuanced nose combines plum, currant, tobacco and dusty minerality. Intensely flavored, delineated and minerally, with red berry fruit complicated by tobacco and currant leaf. I might have picked this for a Graves. Finishes with tooth-coating tannins. A good showing today.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 134

A definitive Pauillac, the dense purple-colored 1998 Pichon-Baron offers up a sweet bouquet of licorice, smoke, asphalt, blackberries, and creme de cassis. In the mouth, the wine is elegant rather than full-blown, with medium body, sweet fruit, nice texture on the attack and mid-palate, and moderate tannin in the long finish. No, this is not as profound as the 1996, 1990 or 1989, but it is an outstanding effort.

Closed up tight as a drum, the wine can only offer cherry fruit aromas at present. Unevolved on the palate with prominent tannins that may never completely resolve. 80% Cabernet and 20% Merlot.
