The headline is that the Grand Vin is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon since the Merlot was affected by coulure and the quality and quantity was such that it was deemed unworthy of the name. As expected it has a classic Cabernet nose with that graphite character coming through very strongly. The palate is medium-bodied with quite tough tannins. There is a good level of acidity although it must be said...I miss that Merlot towards the finish to smooth out the texture soften the hard edges of what is som

Intense black currant fruitiness makes this wine unabashedly forward. The palate bears weighty tannins behind that fruit resulting in a wine that is already quite balanced and structured. Wine Enthusiast.

65% cabernet sauvignon 25% merlot 7% cabernet franc 3% petite verdot. Aged in 50% new French oak.Deep purple in color almost black at the core.Classically Pauillac on the nose with toasty vanilla raspberry coulis graphite and cracked black pepper. This is a pretty modern PichonLalande full bodied on the palate but not overly tannic and already approachable. The texture is impressive still so soft and velvety. It finishes long and rich with vibrant acidity and chewy tannins. This will drink well over the next 25 years. John Sweeney.
