    September 15, 2019 - The eighth wine of 14 vintages of Pichon Lalande back to ‘61 courtesy of Mark Golodetz. Perhaps the best balanced wine of the night, it has delicious dark red and black fruits with excellent vigor and great depth. Fewer tertiaries than I expected but this finish is deeply satisfying with good grip still but also such a smooth texture with great opulence and such supple tannins. It will be interesting to see where this wine goes over the next decade because there is potentially more complexity to come. However, I continue to believe this unique and brilliant Bordeaux was so good young that it peaked about 6-10 years ago.

    August 24, 2019 - From magnum, good color and lovely nose after 30 minutes. Opened up after about an hour, super smooth and silky with no tannin. A soft and classy Bordeaux with a surprising amount of flavor, what a treat. It began to lose strength as it approached two hours from decant, but at it's best it was simply wonderful.

    July 2, 2019 - This was simply, stunning! It had a bit of ullage, and cork was challenging to get out. Very short decant, then served. Wow! Ethereal aromas of sweet breads, forest floor, Pauillac pencil lead, blackcherries (no doubt from the Merlot). Fruit still there, elegant, soft, intoxicating. Went well with my Bison steak. Very tempted to find Magnums. Yes, drink the 750’s now! RP was right about this wine (100 Points)

    June 21, 2019 - Consistent with my previous note. Wonderful mature Claret with beautiful nose of forest floor, autumn leaves, cake and spices. Palate is very tame now, the tannins almost too soft. Time to drink up these beauties.

    (Pichon Lalande) A completely tertiary nose of grilled nuts and lots of truffles (white and black). Just crazy. There were also earth and mineral but those truffles were amazing. Great wine.
