Chateau Pichon Baron 2022

On the 12th June 2023, we now see the release of the second growth wine from Pauillac named Pichon Baron, and the price is up 21.7% on last years release. The ex negociant price is 134.40 Euro a bottle. The wine is being released with a recommended retail price of £1,620.00 per case of 12 bottles at 75cl each according to Liv-ex, and this will result in an increase of 22.7% on the opening price of the 2021's.


Buyers looking for value have several opportunities among back vintages, including the 2015, 2019 and 2020. See more pricing analysis below.


Fair Value analysis

There is no significant correlation between Pichon Baron Market Prices and Neal Martin scores – the chosen critic for Liv-ex’s ‘Fair Value’ methodology.


That said, Pichon Baron prices are 92% correlated to Jane Anson scores and 79% correlated to Wine Advocate scores.


Buyers looking for value in back vintages might want to consider the 2015, 2019 and 2020 vintages. All of these vintages received 97 points from Neal Martin (Vinous) – similar to the 2022 – and are available at discounts of 26.7%, 15.4% and 18.2% respectively to today’s release.


Critics’ scores

Neal Martin (Vinous) awarded the wine a barrel range of 96-98, praising its ‘pedigree and sophistication’. He deems the 2022 Pichon Baron a magnificent wine that ‘achieves a new level of precision’, thanks to new techniques and equipment in the vineyard and winery.


‘Gripping from the first moments’, said Jane Anson (Inside Bordeaux) who scored the wine 94 points. She adds that although it ‘could let more light in at this stage’, age will be very helpful.


‘Elegance with structure’, wrote James Suckling, who gave the wine a range of 96-97 points.


William Kelley (Wine Advocate) rated the wine 95-97 points, calling it an ‘unusually gourmand, sensual wine’ with ‘excellent concentration’.
