Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Bordeaux Blend Wine 1994

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Pichon-Lalande s 1994 should not be forgotten in the rush to buy the sumptuous superstar 1995. I tasted the former wine three times in late March and it was superb on each occasion. The dark ruby/purple color is followed by a captivating nose of sweet jammy red and black fruits vanilla caramel and spice. Medium to full-bodied with a sweet mid-palate crammed with fruit this beautifully-textured voluptuous wine possesses superb concentration outstanding balance and a long rich finish. There are no hard edges (unusual for a 1994) so I suspect this wine will be delicious to drink in its youth. The stuffing and power are present for two decades of evolution. To put it in the context of other recent Pichon-Lalande vintages it is vastly superior to the 1990 as well as richer than the 1988 and 1985! Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
