Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Pauillac 1970
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pauillac|
|Brand||Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande|
Deep garnet; mild cedar and tar nose, with black truffle notes emerging; firm, but slightly dried out and astringent. Review Issue Date: 5/15/93.
Decently colored, but rather light in weight with an astringent, very tannic feel on the palate, this medium-bodied wine does not appear to have the fruit to outdistance the tannin. Only a gambler would bet on it. Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted, 3/86. Review Issue Date: 12/31/97.
