Opened based on Parker vintage recommendation, and comments here. Upon opening and a few minutes of occasional swirl, enjoyed lovely strawberry/cherry/blacberry fruit combination -- quite lovely and very ripe; along with typical cigar box and smoke. Color is a medium rusty burgundy with no obvious bricking. Almost no seepage in to the cork. Very well bottled - could have sat another decade. Taste was mild and dry with sweet tannis. Not much fruit showing initially, tobacco was primary flavor through mid-palate. Finish lasts a good 40 seconds or more. Mouthfeel is good, but not as much glycerin as in better vintages. Will put away for a day and try again. Tasted again on 8/25 and 8/27. On 2nd day, nose was gone, but fruit that was apparent in nose had transferred somewhat to the palate, making it more interesting. My third tasting showed the most balance of all with fruit flavors mingling with the tobacco -- but only while the wine was a bit cooler than room temperature. Once the wine reached room temperature tobacco was the overwhelming flavor. This wine tasted best when accompanying a meal -- it is not a ""drink-alone"" wine.

Deep, dark red, austere, earthy, nose of blackberries, with ripe tannins and a long elegant finish. Magnum

Pichon-Lalandes 1994 should not be forgotten in the rush to buy the sumptuous, superstar 1995. I tasted the former wine three times in late March and it was superb on each occasion. The dark ruby/purple color is followed by a captivating nose of swe... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1994 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 750ml
