100Robert M. Parker Jr.

One of the monumental wines of the last century...a full-bodied, extravagantly rich Pichon Lalande seemingly devoid of acidity and tannin, but the wine is incredibly well-balanced and pure. It is an amazing effort!

98Wine Spectator

This unfurls with amazing grace, as refined tannins let the warmed cassis, macerated plum, pain d'épices, melted licorice, roasted alder and smoldering tobacco notes drape together and hang endlessly on the finish... sublime...

95Stephen Tanzer

Liqueur-like aromas of currant,cedar, lead pencil, truffle and smoked meat. Magically sweet and silky in the mouth, with superb depth of flavor & a complete absence of rough edges. A huge wine

18.5Jancis Robinson

...was one of the great charmers of this famous vintage right from the start. The nose was a little simple and cassis at first and then mellowed into a wonderfully pretty, flattering wine...


France, Bordeaux, Pauillac

Pauillac is Bordeaux’s most famous appellation, thanks to the fact that it is home to three of the region’s fabled first-growth châteaux, Lafite-Rothschild, Mouton-Rothschild and Latour. Perched on the left bank of the Gironde River north of the city of Bordeaux, Pauillac is centered around the commune of Pauillac and includes about 3,000 acres of vineyards. The Bordeaux classification of 1855 named 18 classified growths, including the three above mentioned First Growths. Cabernet Sauvignon is the principal grape grown, followed by Merlot. The soil is mostly sandy gravel mixed with marl and iron. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that “the textbook Pauillac would tend to have a rich, full-bodied texture, a distinctive bouquet of black currants, licorice and cedary scents, and excellent aging potential.”
