Extraordinarily smooth going down. How I wish I had had more than one bottle! Enjoyed with a meal of Bracciole. Opened bottle 1/2 hour before decanting. Allowed to breathe 15 minutes before pouring for diners. Fruit was subdued, but there was zero harshness. Lovely, lovely wine. 
External Reviews for Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande
...dense full-bodied 1989 is brilliantly made with huge smoky chocolatey cassis aromas intermingled with scents of toasty oak. Well-layered with a sweet inner-core of fruit this awesomely endowed backward tannic prodigious 1989... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Gorgeous aromas of currants berries and minerals. Full-bodied with juicy tannins and a long long fininsh. Same as ever... Wine Spectator.
...Pure classic Pauillac aromas of black cherry bitter chocolate menthol and flowers. Very intensely flavored precise and penetrating with an extremely primary flavor of cassis. Almost magically light on its feet owing to its rather strong acidity... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
