1990 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend

Seems like a curiously inconsistent vintage for Pichon. This one did not make the grade. Still a young color, soft on the palate. a short tobacco finish. An aging Bordeaux, but not exciting in any way.

Very toasty, a heavy hand with the oak. Less balanced than previous bottle I had. Not sure I recommend it.
