    Bordeaux in Snuax, Episode #814, 2/11/2010, (See more on Wine Library TV...) 90+ points

    (Chateau Pichon Lalande) #2; COLOR-dark; NOSE-a little stinkified; some plum and licorice action; definite stinky beef jerky and a little pepper; a little blueberry; very aromatic; PALATE-bigger and meatier; big structure; has some really firm and tough tannins that some will be not love, but this is still quite youthful; this is Bordeaux at it's best as it can age; really sour cherries are dominating the mid-palate; pencil shavings coming through; also an intriguing mushroom component that I really like; this is young, but this is still so darn drinkable; RP-93; GV-90+
