2008 Pichon Lalande Pauillac


9.25/10 stars

Like I always reiterated, Bordeaux without 10 to 30 years they’re undrinkable! 10 years for poor vintages like 2007 or 1997, they were approachable right now (except for many first growth), while any seriously good vintages of Bordeaux, keep it for 30 years or longer. This Pichon Lalande 2008 obviously belonged to the better vintage, as the content was totally not ready to drink. Bouquet was great, addictive, feminine, soft and slightly smoky, implied that it should have a good body. And the drama came, the body was not even anywhere ready to be drank! Tight, tannic and with super grip of tannins just overwhelmed the palate. I can’t even find a trace of womanly character which was signature of Pichon Lalande’s character. So, take my initial advice, you want to splurge $200 on a bottle of good wine, make sure it’s worth the price tag when you consume it. Or at least read my notes for recommendation!

LAST BUT NOT LEAST
The last on my vertical tasting of Pichon Lalande showed no weakness, but rather strength. The 2008 vintage is something to definitely look out for in the future as it has a lot more aging and growing up to do.
The nose was a mixture of ripe black and red fruits, lots of sweet smelling fruits, with earthy aromas and a nice smoky fragrance. The palate was filled with sweet blackberries and raspberry, but the tannins were a bit harsh and firm considering it is still young. Great ending!
