Certainly a fine wine, this has ripe tannins that are balanced by the fine, black fruits. With its smoky and black currant character, it has the structure for aging, as well as the attractive fruitiness of the vintage.
In 2017 the Pichon Lalande has an appealing dark and blue fruit on the nose. On the palate it is polished with a silky mouthfeel and a long, graphite persistent finish.
- Deep and intense purple colour with garnet tints
- Expressive bouquet of black fruits (dominated by blackcurrant), flowers like violet as well as subtle notes of cocoa and spices.
- Round and refined, it distills a beautiful freshness on the attack then, in the middle of mouth, reveals fruity aromas supported by finely worked tannins. The fruit develops in the mouth, leaving an earthy touch on a long and very elegant finish.
