CHÂTEAU PICHON LONGUEVILLE COMTESSE DE LALANDE Pauillac 2000

The 2000 Château Pichon Lalande is a truly epic wine and clearly one of the very best wines from the all the region in what was a classic vintage. This compelling blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot along with Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot instantly begins to dazzle with is gorgeous aromas of blackberry and plum fruit followed by smoked meats, exotic spices, floral, tar and crushed stones. It possesses stunning finesse and balance, and the tannins, which are still relevant, are beginning to resolve nicely into the wine resulting in a beautiful soft velvety texture. There is still plenty of life ahead for this wine, especially for readers who prefer a very mature Pauillac. However that being said, this is showing near perfect today and should continue to show well for another decade, so at this point it will be a matter personal preference on how much longer you would like to wait. A very memorable wine. (Best 2014-2025) - December, 2014 (JD)
