France - Bordeaux - Pauillac

Red Bordeaux Blend - Second Growth
Producer Notes

Chateau Pichon Lalande, known as one of the greatest Bordeaux vineyards, has been maintained by the same family for more than 250 years. Located in Pauillac, it was deemed a Second Growth wine estate during Bordeaux Classification of 1855. Its location between the Gironde estuary and the Atlantic Ocean is ideal for growing grapes.

Still holding up, lots of 89s long gone. Fruit is present but structurally starting to soften

Consistent notes. Med dark ruby/mahogany red; profound nose of primarily black fruit dominating tobacco & leather notes; similar & very complex flavors, well integrated mature soft tannins; good grip; very complex and long; beautifully balanced; extremely long finish; still vigorous and drinking well now with plenty of life ahead. A GREAT Bordeaux that has kept getting better in bottle!

Approaching maturity, Pichon-Lalande's1989 has a deep ruby color with absolutely no tannin. Not full bodied but delicately exqusitte! Drink now and love it!

Drinking nicely now, this is a good but not great example of this wine. Should be good for another 3 years or so.

This is what it feels like to have reached the top of the mountain folks. The vista is glorious, the weight of the tannic journey has been lifted and the integration of all elements, time and space has overcome the final precipice. Welcome to the peak my lovers of claret, come on in, the water?s just fine! This is as polished and seamless as Bordeaux gets and to me, represents what 'cellaring potential? is all about. Notions of graphite, lilacs, sweet currant fruit and aged tobacco dance to an elegant tune, with nary a rough edge to be found. Deft, and striking on all cylinders, enjoy this beauty now or over the next 5 years.
