85 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 15 % Merlot, 45 % Grand Vin, 80 % neue Barriques. Dichtes Purpur mit satter Mitte und violettem Rand. Komplexes, blaubeeriges Bouquet mit Brombeeren und Lakritze, dahinter Veilchen und erkalteter Früchtetee. Am kräftigen Gaumen mit engmaschigem Tanningerüst, ein Powerpack mit massivem, reifem Tannin. Eine konzentrierte Ansammlung von schwarzer Frucht mit viel Holunder und Schlehensaft – da ist Munition drin, mit einem langen, lauten Finale endend. Jean- René Matignon sieht Parallelen zum Jahrgang 2010, aber mit weniger  Alkohol, hat die Rasse wie beim Jahrgang 1986 (übrigens sein 1. Jahrgang) mit mehr Präzision und klarerer Frucht. Es war wie 2003 eine langsame Reife der Trauben, aber zum Glück ohne die Hitze. Aus den alten Rebstöcken des Cabernet Sauvignon gekeltert! Könnte auch ein 2000er sein mit mehr Frische!  - Wein Wisser


Nez de fruits noirs, de cerise. Bouche ample, gourmande, fins tannins très élégants, pointe graphite, très long.  - Le Figaro - L'Avis du Vin (Club Vin)


Robe noire, corps ample, dense, tendu, rappelant avec peut-être plus de pureté encore 2010, notes de violette et onctuosité de très grand millésime. Le plus fort pourcentage récent de cabernet sauvignon (plus de 80 %).  -  Bettane & Desseauve


The 2016 Pichon-Longueville Baron is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot picked between 3 and 18 October at 39 hectoliters per hectare for estate (therefore the Grand Vin will be less). It is matured in 80% new oak and 20% one year old for 18 months. It has a very intense, extremely pure bouquet with blackberry, bilberry, cedar and graphite notes; it is a straight-down-the-fairway Pauillac. The palate is medium-bodied with a very tensile opening, that seam of graphite penetrating the black fruit. There is a wonderful structure here, unapologetically classic in style with just the right amount of austerity on the aristocratic finish. The aftertaste is incredibly long, lingering after two or three minutes in the mouth. This is a majestic Pichon-Baron and it may well to surpass both the 2009 or 2010  - Neal Martin


The 2016 Pichon-Longueville Baron is fabulous. In fact, the 2016 is one of the best recent Pichon-Barons I can remember tasting. Smoke, gravel, chocolate, graphite, licorice, leather, black cherry and grilled herbs open up first as the wine shows off its extraordinary aromatic palette. Like so many wines in this vintage, the 2016 delivers serious flavor intensity, but with no excess weight. The richness of the Cabernet, at 85% of the blend, is palpable, as is the quality level. Vivid and deep to the core, the wine finishes with notable density, yet retains its midweight structure.  - Antonio Galloni


(85 Cabernet Sauvignon, 15 Merlot) | 80% new oak | 13.3% alc. | 84 IPT Very dense and firm, but not overly tannic, this is a super-cassis vintage for Pichon Baron with gentle extraction really benefiting this wine. Long, fresh and calm, this is a wine that is built on the slightly smaller Cabernet berries than normal thanks to the hot summer and this gives it a very dark, smooth, vortex of fruit at its core. The result is a wine which I feel will sit side by side with the 2015 in years to come showing two fascinating vintages with equal flair and integrity. 18.5+  - Matthew Jukes


This has some rich liquorice and gingerbread flavours, drawing deeply on the cassis fruits of the 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot. This is incredibly dense and yet feels almost light across the palate. It doesn't have the upfront sexiness of the 2009, this is a more cerebral vintage. Neither does it have the architecture of the 2010, although the technical numbers are quite similar with high tannins and a pH of 3.6. It floats and builds up power slowly, with slightly chalky tannins on the finish. Less of a 'wall' than some recent years, an excellent wine. 45% of the estate's production from 73ha. To be aged in 80% new oak for 18 months. Drinking Window 2027 - 2050  - Jane Anson


85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot. 80% new oak. 45% of total production. Dense, dramatic, splashy wine with great balance and lift. Lots of energy and masses of old Cab in here. Really snazzy. Long.   - Jancis Robinson


Barrel Sample. This is a sumptuous wine, its black fruit tones surrounding ripe tannins. It is generous in acidity as well as an open ripe-fruit character. It is concentrated and obviously designed to age well; drink from 2024.  - Roger Voss


Has the pure, fresh, racy feel of the vintage, which is even more admirable considering the depth of the red currant, plum and cherry preserve flavors at the core and the power of the structure on the back end, pulling in accents of graphite and loam. A thumper of a Pauillac.—J.M.  - James Molesworth


I have been waiting for this for a long time. It's a remake of the legendary 1990 Pichon Baron. Full body, ultra-polished yet powerful tannins and a glorious finish. The will evolve beautifully. The core of fruit and tannins are great. A truly great Pichon Baron.  - James Suckling
