Château Pichon-Lalande 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Opening with a bit of old school funk this offers up smoky, tobacco note and hints fo iron rich clay. With time the nose morphs into a lovely, deeply earthy balance of cassis, cigar box, subtle spicy oak and a touch of musk. Integrated and well knit in the mouth with substantial tannins and solid acidity supporting sweet, plummy fruit with a touch of astringent strawberry seeds. Nice notes of earth and mineral permeate the finish which is long and ends with a finale of mint. Pretty packed and tannic but with a good balance of power and refinement. This grew on me over the course of the 6 hours it was sampled and I am a buyer.

Yeah, there are days I really love my life. Getting to taste wines like this is a part of them. Very generous on the nose, with violet, plum and thyme aromas. On the palate it's rich without feeling weighty. Darker fruits, more earth, a hint of cocoa nib, flowery aromas have more expression. Kept evolving and giving in the glass. So happy this was opened at the right time. This will keep getting better for the next few years, but don't wait too long.

29% Merlot, 71% Cabernet Sauvignon. Opulent and clear purple that fades to a very light violet on the edges. Spicy raspberry over new oak on the nose. Elegant notes of black currant and hint of lavender. Chalky on the palate with firm, green tannins.... Mike Supple. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild 750ml
