Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2000
"...spectacular and certainly a noteworthy rival to the 1996, 1995, and even the extraordinary 1982. This effort has a dense saturated purple color, a singular/distimctive yet possibly controversial aromatic smorgasbord existing of creme de cassis, vanilla and violets, but also tapenade and tree bark. ....In the mouth, it is a wine of extraordinary density, opulence, great presence and richness.....The wine is full-bodied, with extraordinary purity and a tremendous texture...... This is a dramatic, almost flamboyant style that is not classic Pauillac in one sense, but a classic wine. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025." 97/100 pts. (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Apr-2003)

External Reviews for Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac
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. This character is due to a higher percent of Petit Verdot than normal. Muscular Pichon. Best after 2010.
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 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.
Despite slightly strange aromas (plum-skin, berry, stewed tomato) this is pretty to taste. Medium to full in body, with round, silky tannins and a tobacco, berry character on the finish. Drink now or hold.
Good full red-ruby. Very ripe, musky aromas of black plum, currant, menthol, dark chocolate, mocha and meat; less pristine than the 2006 but rather youthfully subdued today. Then lush and fat but not overly sweet in the mouth, with a nice balance between ripe fruit and harmonious acidity. A full, broad wine that builds slowly and lingers on the back end, which features substantial but ripe, round tannins. Canrsquo;t quite match the young 2006 for vitality, but this is distinctly more exotic, in the style of the year.
Black color, with intense Cabernet aromas of blackberries and currants and hints of mint. full-bodied and very firm, with silky tannins and a long, flavorful and caressing finish. A racy and well-structured Pichon-Lalande. Best after 2002.
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
