External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Seriously good Cabernet, with raspberry and grape skin. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a smoky, tobacco finish. Well done.

Bargain Bordeaux from a classic vintage, this Cabernet-dominated, balanced blend will cellar well with its deep, lush blackberry and cassis fruits and moderate tannins.

A plainsong of Médoc typicity, this approachable young Bordeaux is light and floral. The pepper and grape skin flavors end with a kick of acidity, ready to enjoy with red-wine sauced fish or veal.

The best effort yet made by the staff at Pichon-Lalande, this deep ruby/plum-colored wine shows notes of smoky oak intermixed with Provencal herbs, cedar wood, black currants, and earth. A rather fleshy, ripe, attractive wine to drink now and over the next 12 years, it is a blend of 41% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Medium ruby. Gamey aromas of smoke, mocha and tobacco; less primary than it appeared a year ago from barrel. Fairly broad and solidly built, but showing less pliancy and refinement than the 2001. Finishes with chewy, firm tannins that avoid harshness.

Aromas of blackberries, licorice and toasted oak follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long finish. Very subtle. Best after 2008.

This is the finest offering yet produces under the administration of Madame de Lencquesaing (Pichon Lalande's owner). A succulent, concentrated, deep ruby/purple-colored wine, it exhibits considerable finesse as well as copious black currant fruit intermixed with spice box, chocolate, and cedar. Sweet tannin and good acidity provide delineation. It is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2012.
