Wine Enthusiast, April 2011
Stylish wine, balanced, intensely elegant. It has freshness and also weight, encased in a structure that is poised, beautifully integrating black currant fruit and chocolate flavors.

The Pichon Lalande 2008 is backward on the nose: tightly coiled blackberry raspberry cedar and mint: classic Pauillac fruit profile. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins very well knit a little softer and more forward but very composed with a pure velvety finish. This is a beautiful filigree Pauillac that should repay extended cellaring. Tasted January 2012.

Connoisseur's Guide, March 2011
Vying for top honors with the wonderfully rich Chateau Lynch Bages Pichon Longueville Lalande is an outstanding claret of real pedigree whose immense optimally ripe fruit and richness come with near-perfect balance...   Vying for top honors with the wonderfully rich Chateau Lynch Bages Pichon Longueville Lalande is an outstanding claret of real pedigree whose immense optimally ripe fruit and richness come with near-perfect balance. Big-bodied but graceful even as its ample tannins take hold it shows uncanny sophistication even while being youthfully rough at the edges. It is a bit of a crowd-pleaser even now but its very best lies at least eight to ten years ahead.

A tight and tangy red with currant, spice and dried mushroom character. Full body, chewy tannins and a fresh finish. This needs time to open. Decant two hours or wait until 2020.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, May 2011
The 2008 is a beauty in the style of the 1988. Although not performing as well as I predicted last year, it is unquestionably an outstanding effort as well as one of the better values from Pichon Lalande in many years...   The 2008 is a beauty in the style of the 1988. Although not performing as well as I predicted last year, it is unquestionably an outstanding effort as well as one of the better values from Pichon Lalande in many years. Its dense plum/purple hue is accompanied by sweet aromas of red and black currants, charcoal, herbs, underbrush and a hint of truffles. This medium-bodied, rich, concentrated blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc is an elegant, supple Pichon Lalande that can be drunk now or cellared for 15-20 years. - Robert Parker

Builds slowly as the mesquite and roasted plum aromas slowly give way to more layers of tobacco hot stone cassis chestnut and graphite. The long finish really stretches out with mineral and tobacco notes. Best from 2013...   Builds slowly as the mesquite and roasted plum aromas slowly give way to more layers of tobacco hot stone cassis chestnut and graphite.
