There is a considerable degree of polish, elegance and control here in spite of the exuberance of the fruit and there is no excess fat either, making this is pure, Cabernet-driven wine with a refreshing finish. Simply lovely. Rating: 17.5+ Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com (May 2021)

Three successive triages. 14 months' ageingFull bottle 1,345 g. Cask sample taken 16 April. 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot. Merlot was picked 14 to 18 September and Cabernet 22 to 29 September. Three successive triages. 14 months' ageing in barrel (60% new) envisaged. Deep purple. Intense, savoury nose and silky-soft tannins. Classic modern Pauillac from a ripe vintage – which is to say that it is definitely sweeter than 'usual', whatever that is. (I wonder whether, now that the Cazes family own this property as well as Lynch-Bages, they feel a sense of competition between these two wines?) Not dense but beautifully textured with good freshness. 13.6% Drinking range: 2029 - 2046 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Apr 2021)

This uncertainty has kept the market from moving as yet, but although Baron his historically had a better run of scores than Comtesse, it's still interesting to see it climb to even nore consistent high quality. Whatever the price is expected to do, this is still a huge amount of wine for your money. The 2020 represents the same qualitative opporunity if it able to keep the same score.L&S (May 2021)

Pichon Comtesse seems to be improving on its already strong form. You could argue that having the 2009 at £750/6 with 97 points doesn't reflect as positively, but these perfect ratings always move market and if the 2020 can keep it up, then it will be a must buy. At the end of the day, a 100 point wine, especially with this sort of heritage, for just over £100 a bottle, is incredibly fair when considered within the context of the global wine market.L&S (May 2021)
