    (Pichon Lalande) The Pichon Lalande was class in a glass and why I drink Bordeaux. I have always loved this wine, although I found it a point behind usual, a touch closed. The cassis and pencil mélange worked its magic, as did the high Merlot content that makes Pichon so seductive.

    (Pichon Lalande) This was tight but gorgeous. Classic PL nose of spice, green acorn, plum, cassis and tar. Some oak too but very well integrated. Long finish and great elegance. Young but still pretty expressive. Very promising. Check back in five years.
