“Although in the shadow of the millennial vintage, 2001s can be just as good (and on the right bank arguably better). This has a very deep, unevolved colour. The nose has sweet, charming, berry fruit with mint, vanilla and a hint of tobacco. It’s rich and svelte on the palate, concentrated and juicy with fine underlying tannins. There’s an intense sucrosity but with no trace of jamminess. The very long aftertaste is silky with fine, lifted acidity. This is a stylish wine that’s now beginning to show maturity.” (11/2017)

93    Robert Parker for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“A very successful effort for this vintage in the Medoc, this deep ruby/purple-colored Pauillac exhibits class/nobility/breed along with black currant liqueur, licorice, and incense notes. Sweet, expansive, fleshy, and medium to full-bodied, with good structure, ripe tannin, and a long, 30-35 second finish.” (6/2004)

93    Neal Martin for Vinous
“The 2001 Pichon-Baron is a strong follow-up to the 2000. It offers more brightness than the millennial, delivering more red fruit on the nose, plus copious raspberry and cranberry fruit mixed with pencil lead, smoke and veins of blood orange. The medium-bodied palate displays fine tannin and crisp red berry fruit, orange peel and graphite. It doesn’t quite possess the length of the 2000, although it retains admirable precision and grace. The bottom line is that the 2001 Pichon-Baron is a good, solid Pauillac that should drink well for another two decades.” (1/2019)

92    James Suckling
“This is complex and beautiful now with liquorice and currant, with delicate sweet tobacco character on the nose and palate. Medium-to-full body with subtle, entrancing flavors and textures. So right now. Almost a soya undertone to the subtle fruit. A gorgeous claret at its peak.” (7/2013)
