Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse De Lalande 2001

90 points

Pauillac, Bordeaux, France. 13%

Gorgeous aromas, cedar and berries.  Classy claret.  Reminds me of some of the 2002 Pauillacs, probably simply because that’s a vintage I’ve been able to (afford to) drink lately.  Compared with the 2002 this is noticeably softer, more dilute – a reflection of the vintage.  Fine nevertheless. Drink now and over the next 5+ years.
