    December 31, 2019 - 2nd time I have had this wine but the last time was 15 years ago on release. Decanted 4 hours before drinking. 75% Cab Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 3% Cab Franc and a touch of Petit Verdot. Lightly sedimented. Solid crimson color with little or no bricking. Beautiful nose of crime de cassis and forest floor. Typical Pauillac notes of pencil lead, currants and beef blood. Solid but integrated tannins. Leathery notes on the long finish. Starting to really show it's character. This was the best PLB that i have had which includes the 1994, 1999, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2010. 97 points.

    December 15, 2019 - Not blind
    had it side by side with Insignia 2007. the 2000 is close to California from style. A lot of fruit and power, the finish reminds more to Bordeaux. At least 15 more years. 93

    (Château Pichon-Longueville Baron) Very dark red violet color; aromatic, appealing, black raspberry, black cherry, tart black currant nose; youthful, primary still, black raspberry, black cherry, tart black currant palate; needs 6-plus years; medium-plus finish

    (Château Pichon-Longueville Baron) 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. Medium purple color. Wonderfully rich, complex, earthy, and warm on the nose and palate. Mineral, fresh, and savory. good length, with a little warmth on the finish as well. Still seems quite closed now, but has lovely balance. Drink in five to 15 years.

    (Chateau Pichon-Baron Pauillac) A very dark, impenetrable colour. The nose is closed, but gives some notes of roasted fruit and roasted nuts. There's a lovely fat texture on the palate, but with plenty of tannin and acidity to back it up. Dark, brooding, fruit. A splendid effort.
