    July 1, 2017 - Opaque ruby. Intense nose of oak, graphite, blackberries, and violets. Grand presence on the palate with concentrated fruit contained by lip-smacking acids and firm tannins, a full-throated choir in great harmony with a long cathedral-echoing finish. 50 + 16 + 17 + 9 = 92.

    November 10, 2015 - Wife and I love Pichon Lalande and so took a shot at Lady May's South Africa venture. A good wine, probably consumed too young, doesn't make me yearn for more Stellenbosch. Ok, a confession, wanted to find Pichon from Africa, or a wine of that quality and year in year out excellence. This is another good Bordeaux blend, but I think Parker over rated it.
