The blending was rigorous, the proportions classic.

Cabernet France, particularly successful this year, was integrated.

The wine is very harmonious with preserved fruits: blackcurrant and morello cherry.

Mouthfilling, with a fresh, fleshy, long finish.

Balance is flavoured; integrated oak, smooth and dense tannins.

'An undeniable star of the vintage, Pichon-Baron's 2004 boasts an inky/ruby/purple colour to the rim as well as a big, sweet nose of melted licorice, chocolate, black currant jam, truffles, and charcoal embers.

Soft tannin, full body, and abundant opulence and flesh are atypical for the vintage character, but this wine is loaded. Pure, ripe, and evolved, it should be at its finest between 2009-2022.' - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 93 points!

Grape: 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot.
