Tasting Notes

The 2010 Pichon Lalande is performing extremely well and at the top of the range I predicted several years ago. A final blend dominated much more by Cabernet Sauvignon than usual (66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot), the wine is a tighter, more tannic and structured version of this famed Pauillac, which often tends to have more of a St-Julien-like personality than most Pauillacs. Structured, backward and tannic, yet showing a fat mid-palate that is more savory, broader and more expansive than I remember from barrel, this wine is somewhat reminiscent of the 1986, given the Cabernet Sauvignon domination of the blend. Full-bodied, impressively endowed, and less sexy and velvety than normal, this is a somewhat different style of Pichon Lalande than most readers have been used to. Whether you like it more or less will depend on your point of view, but this wine, unlike most Pichon Lalandes, needs a good 5-7 years of cellaring and should keep for 30+ years.

Provenance

This cellar is filled with outstanding Bordeaux from both 2009 and 2010 vintages and has just arrived, refrigerated from Alberta via our friends at Expeditr. The collector bought these wines as an investment, direct from winery and laid them down in his home cellar with full temperature and humidity control. Upon moving homes, this collector needed some extra space and decided to liquidate some of bottles. With many 100 pointers, this is a collection you will not want to miss out on!
