Classic character. Intense aromas of currant and minerals follow through to full-bodied palate, with loads of velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Some people find this herbaceous, but it reminds me of a currant bush more than something green... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 1500ml
Just as I remember it. A wine of stunning complexity and refinement, exhibiting intense grape, plum and toasted oak on the nose. Full-bodied, with superbly well-integrated tannins and a long, fruity finish. Still in barrel.
A megawine, with layers of fruit and various levels of character. This exceptional Bordeaux is full-bodied and very tannic, with masses of rich fruit, berry and tobacco. Very velvety. This powerhouse needs time. Best after 2003.
This seductive, exciting Bordeaux has pulled it all together since our barrel tasting. Harmonious and silky in texture, with mint, berry and cassis aromas and flavors and ultrafine tannins. Itrsquo;s hard not to drink it now, but try to wait until after 1998.
A classic claret from a classy producer. This Pauillac property consistently ranks high with our panels. Surrounded on three sides by the first-growth Ch. Latour, these wines often rival its pricier neighbor. Deep purple in color, and a nose perfumed with cedar, vanilla, plum and beef. Well integrated flavors of green pepper and lush black fruit help make this chewy wine appetizing. The finish is framed by solid tannins, with long notes of coffee and tobacco echoing in the finish. Certain to grow in the cellar, yet, like all the best clarets, it is remarkably seductive when young. Save it for a special meal in 5ndash;10 years.
Deep ruby-red. Very sexy aromas of currant, blackberry and brown sugar, all lifted by an ineffable floral quality from the thoroughly ripe Cabernet Sauvignon that comprises three-quarters of the blend. Dense, fresh and thick with extract; a wonderful combination of texture and guts. Has a core of steel and a powerful structure I havenrsquo;t found in more recent vintages from this chacirc;teau. A very serious style of Pichon-Lalande, with much less Merlot than usual. Finishes with terrific length and grip. Drink between 2005 and 2025.
The 1996 Pichon-Lalande is just as awesome from the bottle as it was form multiple cask tastings. For Pichon-Lalande, the percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon is atypically high. This wine normally contains 35ndash;50% Merlot in the blend, but the 1996 is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Only 50% of the estatersquo;s production made it into the grand vin. The color is a saturated ruby/purple. The nose suggests sweet, nearly overripe Cabernet Sauvignon, with its blueberry/blackberry/cassis scents intermixed with high quality, subtle, toasty new oak. Deep and full-bodied, with fabulous concentration and a sweet, opulent texture, this wine was singing in full harmony in January. Anticipated maturity: 2004ndash;2025.
Robert Parker awards this legendary wine 97 points and writes: “A dramatic effort, the 2000 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, and a whopping 10% Petit Verdot. Only 40% of the harvest made it into the grand vin. Its dense purple color is followed by fabulous aromas of creme de cassis intermixed with roasted espresso, violets, and toast. It has a superb entry on the palate, full body, an opulent texture, silky tannin, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. This stunning wine will provide unreal drinking early on, but age for three decades. Bravo! Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025.”
