($55-$75) Deep ruby-red. Sexy, expressive nose melds currant, tobacco, coffee, mocha, leather and nutty oak. Rich, supple and sweet; a bit less dense than the 2006 but quite savory and enticing. This will evolve well in bottle but already offers considerable complexity. A great success for the year.

An undeniable star of the vintage, Pichon-Baron's 2004 boasts an inky/ruby/purple color to the rim as well as a big, sweet nose of melted licorice, chocolate, black currant jam, truffles, and charcoal embers. Soft tannin, full body, and abundant opulence and flesh are atypical for the vintage character, but this wine is loaded.

Lots of currant, licorice and light tar aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, yet refined and silky on the palate, with a lightly chewy finish. Needs time.

tasted a 96 Pichon at Alan's house on New Years Eve 2013 - it was lovely. Had just right nose for a frence wine but not overly forest floor, flavor was excellent, very nice.

A sweet cherry-cassis note makes this feel almost almost like a right bank wine. It is very attractive; some dryish alcohol shows, a whiff of citronella, and a lot of classy oak. With some time in the glass, the cherry note reminds me of a Brunello. Finishes with a cool floral note (violet) like the 2000 Les Tourelles (Pichon Baron's second wine).
