The Merlot has created the ripeness and smoothness of the wine. While the Cabernet keeps it firm and closed up there is a base of rich sweet fruit here that will show over the next two years. The style of the wine is moving away from elegance to power under the new regime of owners Champagne Roederer.

Tasted at the property, the 2006 Château Pichon-Lalande has a voluminous bouquet with outgoing blackberry, cassis and violets scents, a touch of boysenberry jam tucked just underneath, although it does not quite have the delineation of the Lynch Bages. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This feels very composed in the mouth, quite fresh with well-judged acidity, harmonious and tensile on the finish. This deserves a higher score than I awarded out of barrel and it continues to improve year by year. Tasted April 2016. - Neal Martin

Rich lush and sweet with noteworthy depth to the flavors of dark fruits smoke and chocolate. Wonderfully broad and tactile in the middle palate. Finishes with sweet dusty tannins and sneaky persistence. This fine-grained stylish and downright sexy wine is clearly more successful than the 2005.

This is much more closed on the nose: blackberry and graphite…very tightly coiled at present. The palate is full-bodied with saturated tannins, very pure and viscous, modern style winemaking but there is wonderful balance and focus, leading to a sumptuous, structured finish with tinctures of damson, apricot and raisin counterpoising the austere Cabernet. This is a long-term Pichon-Lalande that may ultimately outclass the ’05.

Displays currant and blackberry, with hints of licorice. Full-bodied, with round, chewy tannins and lots of fruit under the structure. A rich wine for the vintage, needing plenty of bottle age. Best after 2014. 16,665... Displays currant and blackberry, with hints of licorice. Full-bodied, with round, chewy tannins and lots of fruit under the structure.
