    (Pichon Lalande) We snuck a 2000 Pichon Lalande into this flight of St. Juliens, and it was a 2000 Pichon Lalande, which had an elegant, sexy nose, so elegant with its flash of cassis perfume, nut, cinnamon, mineral and Asian spice aromas. Stu observed ‘licorice and anise’ while Wendy was on the ‘truffle’ train. The Pichon had pop to it, and Stu was smacking his lips accordingly. The Pichon absolutely exploded in the mouth; don’t try to take this wine through airport security, it was that explosive, which is unusual by Pichon’s usual standards. This was special stuff, and Mike chipped in ‘good green pepper’

Rockss and Fruit

    (Pichon-Lalande) The Green Monster is not at Fenway Park, it is in retail stores and Bordeaux collector's cellars all over the world in the form of this wine. Will it go away? Only time will tell. But under the green is dazzling complexity and one of the great PL's of all time. The nose had of course green cabernet, but also minerality, perfume, cigar box, lead pencil, cocoa, chamomile tea (greenness?). Tannic but a solid core of dark fruits underneath. Long, ripe and epic on the finish. I mean really long. Fantastic and can only get better. We hope. The 2000 Pichon-Lalande odyseey continues.
