Magnum and it was as good as I remember it the last time we had this out of a magnum. Opened for about 12 hours and decanted for 4 and it was just singing. Classic Bordeaux that was even drinking well the following night after being opened and decanted almost 30 hours.

I'm drinking this in the tasting room at Pichon Lalande, and it tastes gooooood.

Last night, my second favorite pairing. Tonight, my favorite! An older Pichon Lalande and a ribeye. Counting it down. While this 03 is delicious tonight, I won’t touch another bottle until 2028 for the way I’ve learned to enjoy em. However, a good time for a check in given I have several more bottles. The nose reveals; thick, rich, dark currants, creamy fruits of; blackberries, black raspberries, black cherries, hints of cooked rhubarb, black plum with heavy skin & strawberries on the glass edges as it opens. Anise, Indian & Asian spices, soft leather, older tobacco, dark & milk chocolate, caramel, some black licorice, steeped fruit tea, limestone minerals, dry, river stone, moist clay, dark, rich, turned earth, dry crushed rocks with candied, fresh & withering, red, dark flowers. The body is creamy, lush and full. The structure, tension, length and balance are knitting themselves together nicely. The tannins are round, dark and only 45-50% resolved. She’s an elegant beauty that will deliver so much more at 25 years and later. Rich, dark currants, creamy fruits of; blackberries, black raspberries, black cherries, hints of cooked rhubarb, black plum with heavy skin & strawberries on the glass edges as it opens. Anise, Indian & Asian spices, soft leather, cigar box with ash, dark & milk chocolate, caramel, coco powder, some black licorice, steeped fruit tea, limestone minerals, dry, river stone, moist clay, dark, rich, turned earth, dry top soil, dry crushed rocks with candied, fresh & withering, red, dark flowers & violets on the long set. The acidity is round and beautiful. The creamy, elegant finish is balanced fruit & earth and persists nicely for minutes. Photos of; Chateau Pichon Lalande, General Manager-Nicolas Glumineau, Pichon Lalande’s tasting room and their Estate vineyard at twilight and is adjacent to Chateau Latour.

This wine has all the makings of being great one day. It’s just about 8-10 years more years away. The wine is just staring to round out, integrate and show its elegance. Ruby, creamy currants, earth, graphite, tobacco leaf, stones, dark most soil, round acidity and a very well polished finished. This is my favorite Ribeye wine and it didn’t disappoint...only that is still too young. 95-96 in another decade. Photos of, the Chateau & grounds, newer tasting room & barrel room and Estate vines that are adjacent to Chateau Latour.

Classic Comtesse de Lalande. Nose of blackberries, cassis, graphite and pen ink. Full-bodied with velvety tannins that have resolved themselves beautifully, this wine is still young but it exhibits admirable purity, texture, mouthfeel and power combined with elegance.

Also preferred the 2010 Lalande to this one but we're splitting hairs because they were all awesome.

Hard to follow the Cheval Blanc but Pichon Lalande never disappoints. Another beauty!
