1998 Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, Pauillac, Case of 12 btls

" The 1998 Pichon Lalande has a fragrant bouquet with blackberry, wild hedgerow and cedar aromas, although personally I was expecting a little more fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, a more savory style of Pichon Lalande with sage, white pepper and a noticeable undergrowth note towards the dry, quite masculine finish. Perhaps I was hoping for more fruit intensity and vigour here at 20 years of age? Certainly this is no patch against the 1996 Pichon-Lalande. Tasted at the château. " NM Mar. 2018
