Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Bordeaux Blend Wine 2009

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

75% Cabernet Sauvignon 20% Merlot and 5% Petite Verdot aged in 50% new oak. Dark red color with slight pink hues. The nose opens with rose petals mocha and roasted meats that linger as strawberries cassis currants and mint appear. Soft accents of leather and sweet oak emerge later. The palate is long displays robust tannins and has nice flavors but is lacking some of the complexity that great vintages of Pichon Lalande develop. Nevertheless this is still a showy wine that needs time. Giv

Dark red. Sexy aromas of redcurrant smoke mocha espresso and tobacco with darker berry notes emerging as the wine opens in the glass. Rich lush and seamless but not yet filled in with its berry flavors complicated by earth and herb elements. Not the last word in concentration but this sexy Pauillac is sweet shapely and remarkably accessible today. Finishes long suave and palate-coating with perfumed red berry flavor and an obvious chocolatey quality from the merlot component. Steph

Offers a dark roasted core of plum sauce warm fig paste melted licorice and singed cedar while a mouthwatering iron edge and a lovely smoldering tobacco note add lift and length through the finish. A touch restrained now but should blossom with cellaring. Best from 2017 through 2033. -JM Wine Spectator.
