Elegant, perfectly structured, a fine fruit compote from the forest floor, backed with graphite at the back of the palate. Enoteca Pinchiorri was magnificent with a wonderful tour of the cellar included. I am going to ask if I can be buried in it.

Holy balls! Smoky, yummy, bit of spice. Tartness, dark fruit still alive, but danky.

Magnum 1982 Pichon Longueville Contesse de Lalande. First time any of us had tried this. July 4 group dinner at Bouch (A&S, J&D B, McC). Loved this. Decanted and served pretty quickly.

One of my favorite wines of all time. The nose is absolutely haunting but on this night the palate fell a bit short of the perfect bottle I had a year ago. Still a breathtaking wine but not quite perfect on this night.

Another dazzling wine, the 1982 Pichon Lalande is utterly profound from the very first taste. In the glass, the 1982 is powerful and explosive, with seemingly endless layers of flavor that continue to unfurl over time. Vivid, intensely aromatic and seamless, the 1982 has enough pedigree and depth to drink well for at least several decades. What a wine! (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Oct 2017)
