2000 Pichon Lalande Bordeaux Blend - France - Bordeaux - Pauillac - Red - Second Growth

France - Bordeaux - Pauillac

Red Bordeaux Blend - Second Growth
Producer Notes

Chateau Pichon Lalande, known as one of the greatest Bordeaux vineyards, has been maintained by the same family for more than 250 years. Located in Pauillac, it was deemed a Second Growth wine estate during Bordeaux Classification of 1855. Its location between the Gironde estuary and the Atlantic Ocean is ideal for growing grapes. These two masses of water help keep the air moving, which reduces... More »

Issue Issue 108

($133-$155) Good full medium ruby. Rather wild aromas of plum, black raspberry, lead pencil, tobacco, minerals and roasted game. Sweet, thick and complex, with very ripe, mellow flavors of black raspberry, truffle, roasted herbs, espresso and tobacco. Will rely more on its firm tannins than its rather soft, harmonious acids for longevity. This very persistent wine may be starting to shut down in the bottle, but it displays the lovely penetrating sweetness of the year.

Very, very dark crimson. Scented. Lead pencil. Smooth – not a rough edge in sight. Very well done! Low key compared to Longueville Baron, but very good. Super-smooth and suave.

Sitting next to my former colleague, Pierre Antoine Rovani, at one of the tastings, he commented that he didnâÂ?Â?t like the striking green note in the aromatics of this wine, which I didnâÂ?Â?t detect at all, and a subsequent bottle at another tasting did not reveal it either. I do think there is a hint of bay leaf and a meatiness to it. In short, I find this to be a spectacular Pichon Lalande. Dense purple in color, with loads of coffee, mocha, creme de cassis, and chocolate notes, this is a somewhat unusual blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, and a whooping 10% Petit Verdot, with a little bit of Cabernet Franc. The Petit Verdot certainly gives the wine more of a tapenade, floral note, which I think can be interpreted by some as herbal. This is a rich, opulent, stunning Pichon Lalande that is beginning to drink beautifully, yet should continue to improve for at least another 10-15 years and last 30 or more years.

Classic character. Intense aromas of currant and minerals follow through to full-bodied palate, with loads of velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Some people find this herbaceous, but it reminds me of a currant bush more than something green. This character is due to a higher percent of Petit Verdot than normal. Muscular Pichon.

Expectedly so, the millennium vintage was quite reserved (especially in relation to the ?96), but so gorgeously constituted that even the blind could have the foresight of this wine?s potential. Layers and layers of depth are packed and stacked, alongside an ironclad structure that almost pierces w/ its sheer brilliance. Notions of sweet black currants, scorched earth, cassis and high class toast only tease the senses, but do so in as pure a fashion as could be imagined. This is going to be a modern day legend and gives the Baron a run for its money in the 'real vintage of the century.

Initially, this wine gives up huge gushing fruit aromas and sweet fruit flavors. After a few hours, the wine shut down tighter then a drum but still the initial fruit was spectacular. Minerals, muted fruit, leather and anise aromatics. Smooth and well-integrated tannins with high but acceptable acidity. Don'ttouch a bottle for at least a decade.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
