This is testing description. Administrator can delete it.
myself and 3 fellow bartenders just popped the cork on this one.... just had the first taste..... after airing it out for about 10 minutes. the color starts as a garnite then turns more into "raspberry". the flavor of the first sip is light earthy, rustic, light, a bit of berry. we compair this wine to a lighter meritage, with some cab-franc. i wonder what the other vintages would taste like. til then, we are going to enjoy this bottle until we find another. cheers
External Reviews for Pichon Lalande Premier
Some plum and fresh herb character, with hints of cedar and lemon. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a medium finish.--95/96 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1996 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild 750ml
A strong case can be made that this is the finest Duhart produced since the 1982. The color is a saturated dark ruby/purple. The bouquet offers aromas of blackberry fruit intermixed with licorice, minerals, and dried herbs. Rich and intense, with considerable finesse, medium to full body, and outstanding concentration and purity, this should be a reasonably priced wine. It reflects the increased attention Lafite's administrator, Charles Chevalier, has been giving this nearby estate. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020.
