2008 Pichon-Longueville-Comtesse de LalandeBordeaux, France
|Producer||:||Pichon-Longueville-Comtesse de Lalande|
|Capacity||:||750 ml - Standard Bottle|
|Rating||:||RP92 - Robert Parker Wine Advocate||Tasting Note||:||The 2008 is a beauty in the style of the 1988. Although not performing as well as I predicted last year, it is unquestionably an outstanding effort as well as one of the better values from Pichon Lalande in many years. Its dense plum/purple hue is accompanied by sweet aromas of red and black currants, charcoal, herbs, underbrush and a hint of truffles. This medium-bodied, rich, concentrated blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc is an elegant, supple Pichon Lalande that can be drunk now or cellared for 15-20 years.|
