Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Pauillac 1998
|Brand||Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande|
Wine AdvocateAromas of tobacco smoke, cedar, cherries, and black currants emerge from the moderately intense, complex bouquet. This wine has evolved nicely, revealing less austerity than it did last year in its medium-weight, delicate personality. Drink it over the next 15-16 years.
Wine SpectatorHas classic Bordeaux cigar box aromas, but a subtle horsey, barnyardy quality detracts from the solid core of currant and plum flavors. Firmly tannic and well balanced, with ample oak. Biting tannins emerge on the finish. Best from 1994 through 2000. 3/15/91
