“The 1994 Pichon-Baron is a much better wine than the previous three vintages. It has superior definition, for a start, offering scents of blackberry, wild strawberry, cedar and pencil lead; a hint of black tea develops in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple and quite fine tannin. The acidity lends freshness, and there is a pleasant sense of precision toward the graphite- and spice-tinged finish. Not bad at all – a success in the context of what is considered to be a mediocre growing season. Tasted at the Pichon-Baron vertical at the château. Drink through 2032”.

NO LEASHES. (Cellartracker. 19/11/2019).
“This is an awesome wine that drinks well above the reputation of the vintage. Quintessential Pauillac with pencil shavings, currant, flowers, and earth. The fruit is in great balance with the resolved tannins and supporting acidity. A complex classic Bordeaux that for my palate would put many modern wines to shame. I purchased this bottle on a whim in my early wine buying days and am so glad I did”.
