The 2006 Pichon is a big wine. Leather, pepper, dark cherries, plum. Soft velvet texture. Gorgeous.

Despite this Chateau changing hands many times the wine still remains a contender. Black in the glass, shows heavy extraction. Sweet black fruits on the nose...light and sweet on the palate tannins integrate nicely. Drinking well.

One of the most pleasant and unexpected surprises in this tasting, the 2006 Pichon Lalande is gorgeous, which is something I can’t say about too many wines in a vintage marked by climatic ups and downs and irregular ripening. Dark, powerful and intense, the 2006 possesses exceptional balance. A host of black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and menthol flesh out in this decidedly somber, virile Pichon Lalande. In a vintage in which so many wines are so rustic, the 2006 Pichon Lalande is all class. This sleeper Pichon Lalande will drink well for at least the next two decades, perhaps longer.

Beautiful deep purple in the glass. Decanted for a solid 2 hours. Compared to the 09 we had the other week. This is a tighter wine, not as flashy or vibrant but still excellent. If the 09 is a Ferrari then this is a Jaguar. Any of us would take them both!
