Chateau Pichon-Longueville-Comtesse de Lalande Pauillac Cru Classe Bordeaux 2006

External Review by WineExpress.com:

The great Classified Bordeaux, Pichon Lalande is a consistent overachiever, producing collectible quality wine vintage after vintage. Deep intensity and prime ageability are the hallmarks of this legendary Second Growth Paulliac. This 2006 received 90+ scores all around and Robert Parker scored it 95 saying "The 2006 Pichon Lalande, which blows away the 2005, represents a return to the velvety-textured, rich, sexy style most readers would associate with Pichon Lalande. This blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot no Petit Verdot was included in the final blend exhibits a dense purple color as well as abundant aromas of chocolate, coffee, cedar, black currants, and a subtle touch of smoke, a rich, savory, full-bodied mouthfeel, plump, fleshy fruit, and a superb finish. This is a 21st century version of the brilliant 1996. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2030."
