Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes :Medium red. Aromatic nose of redcurrant, plum, tobacco, tar, toast and incense, with a faint weedy component. Silky on entry, then round in the mouth, but with limited sweetness and expansion of flavor. Not especially pliant today despite the relatively high 47% merlot component. Finishes with slightly dry-edged tannins. Not at the same level as the subsequent vintages at Pichon-Lalande.

Somewhat dissapointed by this given its heritage, big on the nose but lighter than expected on the palette. Got better through the evening, but felt it never quite reached its potential. Found it somewhat bland compared to my expectations.

A delicate and refined red. Fresh aromas of raspberries and minerals follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a delicate, refreshing finish. Best after 2003. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1999 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 750ml

...It offers a complex, evolved bouquet of cedar, underbrush, red currants, and spice box. The dark ruby color is not as saturated as many 1999s, and the wine possesses the weight and style of the 1979 and 1981 (both of which are superior to 1999). T... Robert Parker.
