Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Bordeaux Blend Wine 1995

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Crushed blackberries with licorice and light spice. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a caressing delicious finish. Starting to come around. Rich racy and balanced.-- 95/ 96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2007. Wine Spectator.

Deep red-ruby color. Currant loam tobacco and smoky oak on the nose. Silky sweet and tender in the middle palate; leather game and chocolate notes add complexity to the wine strong currant component. Showing slightly less harmoniously than the 96 perhaps due to the bottling but this thoroughly seductive wine has all the components for future greatness. 92(+?) points Stephen Tanzers IWC.

It is an exquisite example of Pichon-Lalande with the Merlot component giving the wine a coffee/chocolatey/cherry component to go along with the Cabernet Sauvignon s and Cabernet Franc s complex blackberry/cassis fruit. The wine possesses an opaque black/ruby/purple color and sexy flamboyant aromat
