Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Bordeaux Blend Wine 1996

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The 1996 Pichon-Lalande is just as awesome from bottle as it was from multiple cask tastings. For Pichon-Lalande the percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon is atypically high. This wine normally contains 35-50% Merlot in the blend but the 1996 is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Merlot 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Only 50% of the estate s production made it into the grand vin. The color is a saturated ruby/purple. The nose suggests sweet nearly overripe Cabernet Sauvignon with it

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... Wine Spectator.
