Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1983

$169

A stunning wine, Pichon-Lalande's 1983 has been gorgeous to drink for a number of years. It is one of the finest 1983s, especially for a northern Medoc. The color remains a dark ruby/purple, with slight lightening at the edge. The knock-out nose of roasted herbs, sweet, jammy black currants, and pain grille is followed by a full-bodied, gorgeously concentrated and well-proportioned wine with low acidity, plenty of glycerin, and a savory, highly extracted, fleshy mouthfeel. This has always been one of the stars of the vintage. Robert Parker

Held up well over all these years. A little past it’s prime. Probably would have been best 7-10 years ago. Great bouquet.

Tomato leaf, spice, with a touch of black fruit nose, mature, herbal, but still lively palate
