Community Tasting Notes 6

    December 19, 2017 - Monthly Tuesday group "The Dead Sparrow" #024 Pauillac (By JS): Reading back my note from 2011, this is a pleasant surprise. The bouquet is pleasantly stinky, with stable smells, brush wood, earth and even some graphite. On the palate juicy dark berries, red fruit acidity, some green impressions and also vanilla. A light bodied wine with still good acidity. Still gives pleasure :-)

    February 28, 2015 - OTBN 2015 - mini vertical of the 91, 92 and 97 vintages.

    All three exhibited classic Pichon terroir characteristics - full elegant floral, dark blackberry and raspberry fruits, earthy leather and tobacco / tea leaf notes, while each showed vintage effects from the three disparate vintages.

    Consistent with earlier tasting five years ago, the '91 vintage initially showed greater complexity, bigger floral, more concentrated fruit, and the most sophistication and balance of the three vintages. The next day, the '92 and '91 seemed to trade places, overtaking the 91 with greater concentration, structure and backbone, however the '91 retained the most polish and greatest balance.

    Pichon's tend to be long lived and hang on much longer than one might expect, so don't rush to clear this out just yet.

    April 8, 2012 - Still oaky and a bit earthy. Lost most of its strength over time.

    December 14, 2011 - Monthly Tasting Group HWS #064; Bordeaux; Pauillac (By RvD): At first the bouquet is not really expressive, but after a while it shows earth, roses, cigar box, tobacco, leather and graphite. On the palate quite tertiary with earth, oak, some dried plums and still fresh acidity and a touch of sweetness. The tannin is completely melted. Light bodied. The bouquet is without any doubt the best part of this wine. This wine is about 8 years past its prime, but certainly still drinkable, especially for those who like their wines really mature. I will not score it.

    June 29, 2010 - Nice older Bordeaux. Lovely nose with soft tannins and gentle, but not rich, fruits of cherries and cranberry. Nice but not memorable.
