Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

"...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)

Red ruby. Enticing aromas of plum, woodsmoke and Cuban tobacco. Lush, silky and suave, with intriguing hints of mocha and cedar. A wonderfully sweet, impeccably balanced claret without any rough edges. Finishes long and firmly tannic.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Beautiful currant, berry and licorice aromas follow through to a full body, with tar and berry character, fine tannins and a long finish. I was expecting a little more from this, but itrsquo;s still outstanding. Best after 2013.

Good red-ruby color. Raspberry, redcurrant, tobacco leaf and flowers on the nose. Red-fruity and refined in the mouth, showing none of the smoke, animal or chocolate qualities I associate with this chateau. Distinctly delicate and fine, with moderate density and suave, building tannins. Incidentally, the IPT here is 68, compared to 73 in 2004. A wine of finesse: only time, and elevage, will tell if therersquo;s enough strength behind it. If there is, this 2005 will merit a score at the high end of my projected range.
