CHÂTEAU PICHON LALANDE
2001 2ème Cru Classé Pauillac
|Grapes||Cab Sauv, Merlot, Cab Franc|
|Classification||2ème Cru Classé|
Ripe just to the last possible point before being sweet. Complete and completely full, with complexity coming. Great depth - there are classical black depths of pencil-lead to plumb. A beautifully-structured, super wine. This is clearly an better wine than the slightly disappointing (for Pichon Lalande) 2000. L&S (Mar 2005)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A distinctive bouquet of violets, soy, pepper, blackberries, cassis, and tree bark gives this 2001 a singular style. This dense ruby/purple-colored blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, and a whopping 14% Petit Verdot exhibits plenty of structure, wonderful sweetness, a closed style, but a rich, textured, persistent character. The unusually large percentage of Petit Verdot gives the wine more structure and less initial charm. This beauty needs some time in the cellar. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018. Rating: 93-93 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com(Apr 2008)
