CHÂTEAU PICHON LONGUEVILLE COMTESSE DE LALANDE 2006
Pauillac. 2ième Cru Classé
u. 12 x bn. 12 x marked & scraped labels.
Tasted at the property, the 2006 Château Pichon-Lalande has a voluminous bouquet with outgoing blackberry, cassis and violets scents, a touch of boysenberry jam tucked just underneath, although it does not quite have the delineation of the Lynch Bages. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This feels very composed in the mouth, quite fresh with well-judged acidity, harmonious and tensile on the finish. This deserves a higher score than I awarded out of barrel and it continues to improve year by year. Tasted April 2016. WA 94
