Description

Château Pichon Longueville, Lalande 1989 Pauillac, 2ème Cru Classéu. 4bn, 2vts, slightly cellar soiled labelsSuch a classy nose of real breed and ripeness. Such freshness, with huge fruit and fat covering the tannic structure. Very Merlot finish. Superb. It is so exotic but is it classic? And does that matter?! Recently, a hot, melting nose, with the strong vintage character overriding the Pichon Lalande character. Sweet and pure coffee and cocoa on the palate. Coffee beans plus all the oriental spices. So full of texture you can eat it. Recently, luscious damsons nose. Vanillin and cedarwood. Very soft and supple. Serena Sutcliffe, MW WA 936 bts (sc)Estimates are per lot
