1993 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/5/2015 - qryan wrote: 92 points

A pointe. Perfectly integrated but not tired, this attractive middleweight shows dark brambly fruit, some earthy secondary characteristics, and a hint of graphite. Expressive both on the nose and the palate, and the texture is silky smooth. Not super concentrated but the balance is impeccable and time has given this some complexity. Absolutely lovely.

Tuesday Night Double Blind $60+ (Bin 75): Black core with reddish violet rim; new, tar, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, modern; fleshy, firm acid, dark fruit, chocolate, smooth tannin; soft and tasty but needs to put on some more weight with age (hopefully), seems almost prepubescent with some upside potential.

There is Pichon, and then there are other wines. Might be the wine of the vintage, albeit based on a narrow sampling. Loved it. everything that needed to happen has happened. Forget what I said a year ago.

Sipping and snacking at Harlan's Penthouse Hong Kong. The “man” himself waived corkage so we went big. Brownish red to the eye. Dark, ripe, red fruits on the nose with a hint of leather, coffee and chocolate. Elegant on the palate, very soft tannins. Perhaps just a few years past her stride in terms of structure, but still silky on the finish. We would have preferred five years ago, but still luvly.

Slowly decanted in bt, garnet with rim in brick red. Nose of leather, cassis and autumn leaves. Vibrant in mouth offering good structure and very fine balance of acidity, tannin resolving, black fruits, long lasting aroma, many 80s wines are in their prime drinking windows, this too but shall hold.

Boysenberry, marionberry, cardamom, clove, speck, bell pepper, black truffle mix is intoxicating. On the palate the fruit turns somewhat redder with earthy notes thrown in. Vibrant throughout the palate with a strong finish.

It represents a return to the velvety-textured, rich, sexy style most readers would associate with Pichon Lalande. This blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot no Petit Verdot was included in the final blend exhibits a dense purple color as well as abundant aromas of chocolate, coffee, cedar, black currants, and a subtle touch of smoke, a rich, savory, full-bodied mouthfeel, plump, fleshy fruit, and a superb finish. This is a 21st century version of the brilliant 1996

Cedar, tobacco, flowers, blackberry and wet earth on the nose, with a medium body and a lightness in the fruit, the wine lacks the concentration found in the better wines from the vintage. The finish has dusty tannins and plums in the end note.

Time to Taste 2000 Bordeaux (R&D's): Double decanted quickly off its sediment and rebottled before being poured with dinner three hours later. Terrific roasted herb, red fruit and tobacco aromas. Flavors of red fruit and tobacco. Cedar, leather and forest floor notes emerge with a little more air. Nicely balanced and ready to go but will hold for a while.

Old Bordeaux nose of musty basement, leather, wet forest floor, and wet cedar. Very smooth with notes of leather, dust, and red fruits. Very easy to drink. A real treat.

No formal notes.
Showed better than the 1983 Palmer tasted next to this.
Very mature nose, wet hay, mushrooms, currant, touch of stable, forest floor, earth and leather, with a touch of spicy tobacco leafs and cedar wood.
Palate shows soft and silky red and black currant, wet forest floor, tobacco, touch of herbs and cedar.
Fruit is dying and falling off, leaving an old gentleman-like, silky, velvety wine, with a very light body.
Still alive, although on its way downhill I should say.

For the price paid the only positive was it showed lots of life left given the tannic structure. But I was not impressed by its nose - reticent; fruit - stewed; complexity - uninteresting; balance - too tannic. Not a classic and not what I wanted in an 11 year Pauillac from a reputable Chateau.

1996 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

6/20/2015 - Papies wrote: 95 points

This is a masterpiece (easily the best bottle we have had so far in e attempts overthe last 6 yrs - Papies 92-93) and really a young wine still albeit with a lot of secondary characteristics. Double decanted (a bit of fine sediment so one needs to be a bit careful) and took to The Beast, London. A good 1.5hrs from open to consumption and by then the wine was singing.
A beautiful, classic nose (present from th epop of the cork), leather, light pepper, cedar, maybe tobacco at times. Open, very expressive nose and justa joy. On the palate it is still just about entering its drinking window and the wine has many more summers to live through. Stilll even not at peak, it has pretty nice fee, tannin is on the silky side and def has shed that 1996 wall of tannin feel. A few dry spots on the finish do jump out but this is a true classic. 95.

Bordeaux wine dinner; 6/18/15:
Pichon Lalande 1990 - Lighter color than others, I think passing its prime. A little dry on the finish but perfectly nice still. 90
Gruaud Larose 1989 - Very classic nose and palate of cedar and pine notes. Most silky palate of the bunch. Two at the table thought it was wine of the night. Not as much to my taste but very much classy Gruaud. 91
Cos 1986 - Funky barnyard nose. Deep palate with still strong tannin, but plenty of fruit coming through. Liked it but there was some brett there that to me, hurt. 92
Lynch Bages 1985 - For me, the wine of the night, largely due to the truly stunning nose. A tad dry on the palate but still long finish of dark fruit. 94

2000 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

6/13/2015 - AllRed wrote: 96 points

Time to Taste 2000 Bordeaux (R&D's): Dark crimson color with notes of clay, red and black currants, beef blood and roasted red bell pepper with herbal undertones. I am immediately thinking this is the Pichon Lalande which has always, for me, given a greenish, herbal quality that I just adore. Firm tannins with flavors of red and black fruit, warm spices, herbs and bay leaf. Finishes with great length, again well over a minute. Roasted bell pepper, earth and herb notes become stronger, balanced by an abundance of dark fruit. Balanced. 96+ pts.

I was fairly certain right from the start that this was the PLL and stuck to my guns as the wines were being unveiled...very glad I did.

My #2, Domino's #5
Group #7, 61 pts

A fun, rewarding experiment with this 39 year old wine. Very light brick red when opened and deepened to a dark ruby color and bricking with air. Nose had some sweat and funk which lessened over time to yield some dill and green pepper in a fresh pleasant way. Smooth as silk with subtle leather, cherry, blood orange notes. A touch of acidity. No tannins. Short finish.
