From magnum, the wine offers an explosion of black fruit with a lovely violet, black cherry and cassis foundation. There is a hint of bay leaf and emerging tertiary notes of leather, forest floor and cigar box. Cedar emerges on a long finish. Very elegant, silky Tannins and beautiful weight in the mouth. Truly elegant with a textbook balance of grit and earthy character. Gorgeous now and for another decade at least.

The sample of 2019 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande sent to me last year was an absolute show-stopper. The bouquet needs a few minutes to open up, delivering intense black fruit, crushed stone and incense with time in the glass. Yes, the nose does remind me of Latour! The medium-bodied palate is endowed with unerring symmetry and poise. This is a powerful, multi-dimensional Pichon-Lalande, extremely precise, very deep and long. The 60% new oak is seamlessly integrated and feels just right. It reminds me of the 1996 in some ways, but with more finesse on the finish. Stunning. 14.12% alcohol (Neal Martin, Vinous, February 2022)

Dark color, opaque. Has some (good) funk on the nose. Notes of black fruit, cedar desk, leather saddle, cracked walnuts and some blood sausage. Coats the mouth with softened tannins and rich fruit. Sort of angular rather than lush. Much better tonight than the last time I had this many years ago. In a great window. Enjoy now and for a long time in the future.

A nice poised nose. A little under for a 2009. Quite cold blooded and a bit lacking in the mid palate. Compared to the 2009 Baron this is miles away. Disappointing

Perfect fruit. Quietnesses of Bordeaux.

Pine shavings and number 2 pencil. Cardamom, cumin, curry, red fruit on the palate. Black pepper. Resolved tannins. Elegance, but not much energy or enchantment.

Still brawny with lots of structure. Beautiful black and blue stone and berry fruit, chalk and minty cigar box. Absolutely delicious but also in no hurry. Great wine. 3 hour decant.

Excellent in every way. Lithe, cafe au lait, black olive tapenade, sage and chocolate. Plum. Wonderful integration and balance. In the window and not at all over the hill. 3 hour decant.

Dark tawny, mostly opaque with amber-ish and clear rims. Quiet nose with faded fruit, until this opened up after a 4 hr decant. Then there are ample notes of black berries, cedar wood, cola, red cherries, some herbs, some mocha and a little pine. Was at its best when washing down a nicely grilled T-bone.
