    (Chateau Pichon-Lalande (Pauillac)) An exotic, lightly spiced nose that is redolent of the Pichon vintages of old that I loved. It has fruit freshness and perfume, but also suggests a certain spice and substance and depth. A supple start on the palate, and then the fruit is lifted by a balanced texture and gentle substance coming in underneath, showing a fine grip. And then, in the finish, the tannins finally show their face, ripe and fine-grained, with a long, spicy finish. A very restrained and elegant, dare I say feminine character here. This is a great Pichon-Lalande.

    (Chateau Pichon-Lalande Pauillac) A good vibrant hue here, with a bluish tinge at the rim. Dark, concentrated, spicy fruit with a nice, gritty style. There is both purity and depth here, but also fruit complexity. The composition on entry is quite fine, and underneath there is a velvety coat of tannins, big and ripe. Quite harmonious though, elegantly composed, with a good spark of acidity too. Pichon-Lalande is sometimes accused of missing the boat on great vintages - as with 1990 and 2005 - but on the basis of this wine - admittedly nothing more than an early barrel sample - that doesn't appear to be the case in 2009.
