Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

$225

...the 1995 is a smoother, more immediately sexy and accessible wine. It is an exquisite example of Pichon-Lalande with the Merlot component giving the wine a coffee/chocolatey/cherry component to go along with the Cabernet Sauvignon's and Cabernet Franc's complex blackberry/cassis fruit. The wine possesses an opaque black/ruby/purple color, and sexy, flamboyant aromatics of pain grille, black fruits, and cedar. Exquisite on the palate, this full-bodied, layered, multidimensional wine should prove to be one of the vintage's most extraordinary success stories... Robert Parker

Was everything I expected and then some... Expected the elegance, the graphite, the earthiness, the black fruits, the finish (oh, the finish). But did not expect the 21 year old wine to still be so tight right out of the bottle. A 1 hour decanting improved this wine tremendously. Drank May 2016.

Still very young--needed all of the 3 hr decant and still didn't show great til the very end of the night. But very good potential. I'd hold for another decade.

1995 vintage. Slightly musty nose blew off. Great fruit. Smoky. Silky texture.

Nuanced fruit, dried tobacco leaf, over a sleek frame with powdery tannins.
