    (Pichon Baron) The 1990 Pichon Baron really made me take notice at the end of the night; I was impressed. I have still found the ’89 and ’90 PB to be up and down and inconsistent, but some bottles are truly great.

    (Pichon Baron) Bottle variation reared its head again with the eleventh wine served on its night. The first bottle had a rubber tire nose. There was cassis and fruit behind that, along with asparagus and animal. The flavors were all asparagus, and the finish was out of balance. ‘Tarry and leathery’ came from Vincent. He continued, ‘its earthiness is on the Northern side.’ This first bottle of 1990 Pichon Baron was barely (90). The second bottle I tasted was spectacular; there was a thick ocean of deep fruit along with smoke, charcoal, gravel and rich tobacco flavors (95). It just goes to show you that it always comes down to the bottle, and while wines are more consistent than they are not, there is variation.

    A Mega 1990 Bordeaux Tasting with Clive, 3/21/2005 94 points

    (Pichon Baron) was very forward with an in your face nose, ripe but reserved with some animal, earth and kink. There was a bit of cultish cassis and banana fruit. The palate was round, balanced, rich, spiny and long in this excellent, 17 ½ CC wine

    Dom Perignon, 12 Angry Men, Auction Lunch and a Holiday Party, 12/13/2004 90? points

    (Pichon Baron) The next wine had some stink and diaper in the nose, but also some more positive steak and earth with a pinch of barn. The flavors were a little on the medicinal and herbal side, St. Emilion-ish with the wintergreen thing. The wine had very good balance and length, but it was a bit disappointing

    (Château Pichon-Longueville Baron) Lovely coffee, herbal, and cappuccino truffle nose; beautiful coffee, truffle, lip smacking fruit, with solid structure; long finish
