2000 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/22/2015 - Sennma wrote: NR

I'm not sure that this wine has a great life ahead of it. The big fruit is starting to recede and leaves me wondering whether the secondary notes will kick in. Holding off on a score but slightly disappointed given the house and vintage.

Eh. For one of my favorite château in all of Bordeaux this was rather lacking in personality as well as class. Not closed either as it is still fairly primary in fruit. I guess that counts as a triumph for the vintage, which isn't always so ripe. This did have a slight bite of bell pepper but that's something I welcome in PLL. I was mostly disappointed because PLL usually has a very graceful figure and this didn't show its breed as far as the texture goes.

This is just not good. Dry, acidic, and green!

Decanted for 90 minutes. The nose was dominated by barnyard/funk for the first hour, combined with earth and soil. Even after the funk faded a bit, the nose did not show a lot of fruit. Frankly, the nose was not particularly appealing.

In the mouth, this wine was beautiful. Sweet dark fruit, lush and chewy. Tannins were soft and matched up well with the fruit. The finish was long and complex. As the night went on, this got better and better, with layers of flavors on display.

1975 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/15/2015 - Don Greer Likes this wine: 95 points

Given the age of the wine, I was surprised at the color and cleartiy of the wine. It was decanted before being served and there was only small amount of sediment. The cork was moist and fresh. Most at the those at the table suggested the wine had a bit of a barnyard smell, but I found the wine to be have a spicy aroma. The colour was rudy with just a hint of a tawny edge. The wine was very gentle and smooth and stood up well with no noticable faults.

HDH auction tasting at Tru; 5/15/2015-5/16/2015 (Chicago, IL): 15 years on, this is still just a baby. There is absolutely no reason to open this right now. Tightly wound, with immense structure from its tannins, acidity, and dense fruit. Fantastic ripe fruit balanced with herbaceousness. Very powerful and long, this certainly has a long life ahead of it.

A victim of it's own success, I think - backwards and still reticent probably because it has been so well kept (the fill is up to the foil). Opens over 4 hours to show beautiful powdery black currant, cedar, violets, and with more air, pure white flowers. Very much like a younger version of the 89 with not only the aromatic profile but the silky smooth texture and perfect balance. I think Clive Coates wrote about this wine, "O joy to come!" - how I agree. Needs 5 years at least from a bottle like this.

5/13/2015 - Jeff Leve wrote: 89 points

Better on the nose, with its smoky, tobacco, earthy, blackberry, forest floor and cigar box character, than on the medium bodied, crisp, bright, sharp, cassis and olive tapanade palate. The wine was produced from a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Franc.

Nice garnet, no breaking in meniscus, holding together beautifully. Resolved soft tannins in balance with medium alcohol and extract a feminine soft style - long finish. Very good bordeaux

Landmark Hotel Decanter Masterclass with Nicolas Glumineau. An interesting contrast to 1996, and is a tad more angular, perfumed, black tobacco, cedar and capsicum. Graphite and mineral finish.

Landmark Hotel Decanter Masterclass with Nicolas Glumineau.
Sweet ripe fruits, dense and lush, completely resolved tannins and enough acidity to enjoy this wine today and a few more years to come. An interesting contrast to 1995, which was a little more angular, perfumed, black tobacco, cedar and capsicum. Graphite and mineral finish.

Landmark Hotel Decanter Masterclass with Nicolas Glumineau.
The long Indian Summer meant perfect conditions for the wines, warm days and cool nights. Wood spice, cedar, leather and black fruits were a delight on the nose. Returning on the palate with a kick of spice towards the end. Lovely finish.

Landmark Hotel Decanter . Masterclass with Nicolas Glumineau. Coolness of fruits on the nose, ripe red and black fruits, classic style of power and elegance. Spicy and peppery finish. This is drinking beautifully now. As were most of the left bank wines tasted at the event, my favourites including Beychevelle and Branaire-Ducru, showing sweet ripe fruits, wet stones, tobacco leaves and minerals

Cedary notes on the nose, green bell peppers, tobacco - not as ripe and expressive on the nose compared to the 1996. On the palate similar observations - less ripe and harder, a bit lean and drying towards the finish. Nice length. 91-93

With the 2010 the best wine in this vertical. Nicely evolved in colour, very healthy and glowing. Fine nose with dark fruit, pencil shavings, leather, spices, earth. Wonderful texture, open, round, but with a lovely bite to it. nice acidity and spiciness - all very well integrated. Very good finish. No rush drinking this, but delicious now. 93-95

More evolved in colour than 2001 and 2004. Ripe fruit on the nose, quite opulent, sweet tobacco, cigar box, spices. Pretty well balanced on the palate, a little simple, but with good fruit, nice acidity and good length. Just a little drying towards the finish. Drink soon. 89-91

Compared to the 2010 and 2009 a hint of discolouration around the rim, but still very dar and youthful in colour. Perfumed on the nose, good depth, dark fruit, graphite, spices. On the palate still quite grippy, fine fruit, precise and well balanced. Bright acidity, nice length. A better showing than in February and much more 2005-like. Very good. 92-93+

Dark in colour, glossy. A lot more restrained on the nose than the 2010 Reserve, much finer fruit, more depth. Quite tight and closed, hints of tobacco and spices. On the palate firm, spicy, well structured, with ripe but grippy tannins, good acidity, very fine length. Needs time, but should be excellent. 94-95+
