1995 Chateau Pichon-Longueville-Comtesse de Lalande (1.5 L - Magnum)Bordeaux, France
|Producer||:||Chateau Pichon-Longueville-Comtesse de Lalande|
|Capacity||:||1.5 L - Magnum|
|Rating||:||96 - RP||Tasting Note||:||What sumptuous pleasures await those who purchase either the 1996 or 1995 Pichon-Lalande. It is hard to choose a favorite, although the 1995 is a smoother, more immediately sexy and accessible wine. It is an exquisite example of Pichon-Lalande with the Merlot component giving the wine a coffee/chocolatey/cherry component to go along with the Cabernet Sauvignon's and Cabernet Franc's complex blackberry/cassis fruit. The wine possesses an opaque black/ruby/purple color, and sexy, flamboyant aromatics of pain grille, black fruits, and cedar. Exquisite on the palate, this full-bodied, layered, multidimensional wine should prove to be one of the vintage's most extraordinary success stories. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2020.|
