One of the monumental wines of the last century is the 1982 Pichon Lalande. Since bottling it has flirted with perfection and was a sprinter out of the gate which gave rise to questions about how quickly it would begin its decline. However at age 27 it retains all its glossy rich flamboyant cassis fruit chocolaty berry jam-like notes and plenty of earthy foresty flavors. This is a full-bodied extravagantly rich Pichon Lalande seemingly devoid of acidity and tannin but the wine is incredibly well-balanced and pure. It is an amazing effort!

A voluptuous red. Very dark ruby-garnet. Aromas of currant meat and berries. Full-bodied and velvety with lovely ripe berry and earth and a long ripe finish of caressing texture. This has always been a great wine...

Liqueur-like aromas of currant cedar lead pencil truffle and smoked meat. Magically sweet and silky in the mouth with superb depth of flavor and a complete absence of rough edges. A huge wine with utterly compelling sweetness and great terroir character. Powerful if somewhat unrestrained. Finishes ripely tannic long and sweet. Many tasters still rank this among their two or three favorites of the vintage. Drink now to 2015.
