    June 23, 2022 - (96-98 vvPunkte) Sensationeller Duft, klar und rein wie ein Bergbach, dunkle Beeren, Cassis, Brombeere, darüber florale Noten und deutlich grüne Paprika, das ist eine dieser Nase, die man eigentlich in ein Parfüm verwandeln möchte, ein Hit. Im Gaumen cremig und weich im Auftakt, packt dann zu, die Frucht ist knackig, Säure und feinmaschiges Tannin verleihen viel Struktur, lebhaft, hochelegant und wiederum mit diesem grünen Paprika-Aroma im Retrofinale erinnert mich der Wein an die grossen Jahrgänge der 80er, einfach noch viel besser. Ausgezeichnet. 2028-2050+ (Verkostet "En Primeur" im April 2022. UGCB) vvWine.ch

    May 20, 2022 - With a nice depth of color for the vintage, you find flowers, blackberries, black cherries, tobacco wrapper, cigar box and spice in the nose. There is a sweetness to the fruit, combined with salinity, soft tannins and freshness on the palate, finishing with a strong touch of salt that accompanies the peppery, chewy red fruits in the endnote. This is a modern-classically styled vintage for Pichon Lalande. The wine blends 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 2% Merlot. 12.9% ABV. pH 3.75. This is the second highest percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the history of the estate. The harvest took place from September 22 ending October 5. Yields were incredibly low at only 15 hectoliters per hectare, almost 70% below a normal harvest. Drink from 2025-2055. 94-96

    April 26, 2022 - En-Primeur campaign for the 2021 vintage; 4/25/2022-4/29/2022 (Bordeaux): Blackcurrant, a little sweaty note, touch of biscuit, polished oak, smidge of eucalyptus in the background. Medium plus intensity acidity, tight chewy tannins are flour textured and fairly enamel stripping with a green underpin, the dark fruits persist beneath this…not as charming or approachable as the drop from the other side of the road.
