    September 5, 2021 - Not decanted. Probably 94-95 with air. Maybe a bit too early. Either 4-5 hrs decant or 5/7 more years. Anyway it’s all there. Great.

    July 23, 2021 - Earth and dark fruits. Dense. Still a bit tannic. Better after 2 hour decant. Seems young. Promising.

    June 23, 2021 - 24 Vintages of Pichon Lalande (1985-2015): All wines tasted blind. A few general observations: 1) Most wines showed the typical Pichon Lalande elegance. This is certainly one of the more delicate and elegant Paulliacs. 2) The relatively high Merlot content (often 20-30%) showed in many wines with fine, fresh rhubarb, rosehip and floral aromas I wouldn’t necessarily associate with a Medoc - all adding to the sensuous quality of the wines. 3) A few vintages showed the very sexy burnt sugar/coffee notes you associate with the 1982 Lalande or a Mouton or a Cheval Blanc - unfortunately, not to an extent and with an intensity to truly excite. 4) Following the legendary 1982 and until the most recent vintages (starting with 2014 but especially with 2016) there are three decades of pleasant Pichon Lalandes but hardly any vintage has the depth and length of truly great wines. The best wine tonight was the 2009 (rated 95+ points) with many more in the 92-94 point category.

    TN: A rather muted nose not giving much at this point. Better on the palate but also not completely open. This would have needed a long decant to open up. Superbly fresh and light with lots of pure, ripe red fruit and floral aromas, elderflower, rhubarb and roship, a bit of herbs and earthy notes. Very pleasant and light, elegant and soft, super harmonious and with good length. Drinking on a 94 points level but certainly can gain a few more with maturitiy, more openness and more complexity.

    May 29, 2021 - 2010 Blind Cali Cab/Bordeaux Homage to Spurrier (Chez de la Mata): Blind. Very pretty nose that has loads of mineral, tobacco leaf and cedar. Delicious palate that has sweet fruit but so much tobacco and bell-pepper complexity. Youthful, but delicious with the structure to age for a few decades. Correctly guessed as BDX and PLL. My 5/10, Group 10/10.
