    January 5, 2020 - Got this bottle from auction at great price. Pnp. Brick rim brownish garnet. First time to try “old” bordeaux. Frankly, I would prefer the slightly younger style but it was amazing.

    September 21, 2019 - Perfectly aged bord. Decanted 45 min. Exquisite

    September 16, 2019 - Double decanted around 6:30 pm, decanted again at 7:15 and served at 8 pm. Musty when decanted, which dissipated when served. Slightly minty with near eucalyptus hints when first served, which transitioned to more cigarbox, cassis and graphite after 20 minutes in glass. Enjoyable to start, this kept getting bigger, longer and more nuanced with more time in glass, finishing very strong.

    (Chateau Pichon-Lalande Pauillac) Mature hue. Smoky, meaty, coffee-toffee nose. Ripe, intriguing, superb. What a seductive and sexy palate; luscious plumpness, with spice and fruitcake and chocolate-smothered plums. Ripe, full, and so drinkable. This is gorgeous - it has Pichon written all over it. Should drink well for another five or six years at least.

    (Chateau Pichon-Lalande Pauillac) Another darkly coloured wine. A wonderful nose, which is intense and powerful, inviting one to taste. Aromas of dark fruit and minerals, with chocolate, mocha and even a touch of toffee. Powerful, rich and sweetly textured on the palate, but still with fine, crisp, mineral-edged fruit. Again, wonderfully balanced acidity. Fantastic stuff.

    (Chateau Pichon-Lalande Pauillac) A moderately intense mahogany-purple hue. A superb, classic, smoky, pencil lead mature claret nose that sings Pichon-Lalande. The palate is fruit-laden, with toffee notes and a superbly textured, creamy body. The tannins are integrating and there is lovely, balanced acidity. Finishes beautifully, with length. Absolutely lovely wine.
