This property (which borders Lafite, Mouton, and Pontet-Canet) is owned by the proprietors of Pichon-Lalande. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, the 2000 is an elegant, nicely textured, smoky, sweet wine offering scents of caramels intermixed with black currants, cherries, cedar, and licorice. Supple-textured and lush, it should be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years. A sleeper of the vintage.

This is lovely, vibrant red fruit, still showing some tannin, cedarbox nose, great weight and mouthfeel, can go another 5-7 years.

Dark reddish purple, medium to full body, a bit of spice with the dark red fruits, velvety, nice mid-palate and finish. Delicious.

Dark ruby with bricking at rim. Not overly powerful, but mature Bordeaux nose of dark fruit and saddle leather. Dark fruits dominate the palate with leather and hints of mint and chocolate (from the merlot in the blend?). Could still shed some tannin, but on the whole this was very well resolved. Long finish. Very nice; elegant if not overpowering. Drinking well right now.
