    January 15, 2017 - Required 90 minutes in the wide-bottom decanter and warming to room temperature to show fully (before that somewhat muted). This was one of the fuller-bodied Lalandes I've tasted. I usually prefer the more dirty, earthy notes of the Baron but this was balanced, interesting and delicious. It had the usual cigar box nose and tobacco notes over a very integrated secondary Pauillac body. Seems to be in its prime.

    December 25, 2016 - The 94 still has a nice nose of lead pencil, fruit is there on attack, but I find finish dry and short...

    Likely better with food than as a stand alone at this point.

    November 12, 2016 - Beautiful color. Drinking very nice. Classic mature Bordeaux, lots of tobacco, cigar box, black fruit, and little lead/minerality. Wouldn't hold much longer.

    September 26, 2016 - This was beautiful from the start,opened but didn't decant following a previous TN advice,let it sit for a while and it was really good,very complex,sometimes a bit hollow in the middle,but a great experience.The persistence on this baby was absolutely remarkable,I loved it.

    September 24, 2016 - Tight, tart, and tannic. Iron structure with little to no fruit underneath. no nose for about an hour, after which some damp soil and red cedar began to come through. Soy and a bit of spice. Dry. Pretty tough stuff and not a lot of pleasure here.

    (Chateau Pichon-Lalande Pauillac) Dark, deeply coloured, mature. An impressive nose, loaded with a super-sweet depth of smoky, meaty, blackcurrant nose. The palate keeps up appearances, with a wealth of big, sweet, glossy, creamy and textured fruit. Very accessible, voluptuous, although with a tannic backbone. Exotic. Balanced. Absolutely gorgeous wine. Approachable now, but with a little tannin still showing in the finish as well this has room for improvement yet.
