The brilliant, opulent, fleshy 2003 Pichon Lalande (65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot) possesses a high pH of 3.8 as well as 13% alcohol. Reminiscent of the 1982 Pichon Lalande (which never shut down and continues to go from strength to strength), the dense plum/purple-colored 2003 offers gorgeous aromas of blackberries, plum liqueur, sweet cherries, smoke, and melted licorice. Fleshy, full-bodied, and intense, displaying a seamless integration of wood, acidity, tannin, and alcohol, this beauty can be drunk now or cellared for 20 years or more. Robert Parker

Hot vintage traits of compaction, dried fruit and coarse tannins.

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.

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

Blackberry, black plum, raspberry, leather, dusty tannins, red roses, toasted oak, caramel, light earth. Good but still needs 3-5 years.
