    (Château Pichon-Lalande (Pauillac)) This year the blend is Cabernet Sauvignon 78%, Merlot 8%, Cabernet Franc 12% and Petit Verdot 2%, and only 40% of the crop went into the grand vin. Alcohol 13%, acidity 3.36 g/l, IPT 75. Compared with the Réserve, tasted first, this is clearly several steps ahead; there is that classic exotic nuttiness and spice of young Pichon-Lalande, combined with fruit showing a sweet definition, but it is still obviously very primary. The palate is exactly what I want to see; an exact, elegant and supple composition, with a very polished backbone of fine-boned tannins. A lovely tension here. Overlaid are some increasingly perfumed fruit notes which do much to flesh out the midpalate. And there is fresh acidity too. Really an excellent effort here. And it is showing quite consistently, both at the château and at the UGC.
