A bit less approachable at this stage than this wine usually is. Firm and focused, with a pleasant minty edge to the solid currant and cedar aromas and flavors, hinting a tobacco and toast on the long finish. Thick in texture without being heavy. Should be at its best after 1995 to '97. Tasted three times.
Just as I remember it. A wine of stunning complexity and refinement, exhibiting intense grape, plum and toasted oak on the nose. Full-bodied, with superbly well-integrated tannins and a long, fruity finish. Still in barrel.
A classic claret from a classy producer. This Pauillac property consistently ranks high with our panels. Surrounded on three sides by the first-growth Ch. Latour, these wines often rival its pricier neighbor. Deep purple in color, and a nose perfumed with cedar, vanilla, plum and beef. Well integrated flavors of green pepper and lush black fruit help make this chewy wine appetizing. The finish is framed by solid tannins, with long notes of coffee and tobacco echoing in the finish. Certain to grow in the cellar, yet, like all the best clarets, it is remarkably seductive when young. Save it for a special meal in 5-10 years.
Last year it was the "other Pichon" (Baron) that rose to the top to become our No. 1 wine. This vintage, the Pichon to seek out is Comtesse de Lalande for its characteristic, seductive suppleness and minty berry and cassis flavors. Ultra-fine tannins promise a long and happy life.
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. It's hard not to drink it now, but try to wait until after 1998.
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.
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.
