Pichon-Baron have made a real blockbuster this year, "hands down one of the most impressive wines of 2020" according to Antonio Galloni (96-98 points).
We found it a muscular, intense wine with dark, powerful fruit and an energetic, mineral character. Lisa Perotti-Brown MW finds this muscular character too, using uncharacteristic language, describing it as "built like a brick house (95-97+ points)". Pichon-Baron is frequently overshadowed by its slightly more glamorous sibling Pichon-Lalande, but with these scores and at £663 per six versus Lalande at £807, it is a compelling buy.
