2002 Pichon Lalande

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2002
Appellation: Pauillac
94 (RP)
Pichon Lalande is often judged on its relationship to its namesake and opposite neighbour, Pichon Baron, and understandably so; what this overlooks (and we use the term carefully) is that Pichon Lalande adjoins the venerable terroir of Chateau Latour, arguably the finest piece of vineyard real estate on the Left Bank. From their stunning new glass-and-steel winery one is afforded a vista that is virtually unmatched in Bordeaux – across several hectares of Cabernet and Merlot vines, straight onto the Gironde, via the hallowed house of Latour and its famous squat stone tower. This is no uneasy neighbour; at its best, Lalande stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the First Growths. If Pichon Baron boasts the power and masculinity of Latour, then Pichon Lalande sports its elegance, perfume, clarity of vineyard and sensual texture. Since Nicolas Glumineau took over the reins the estate has delivered a string of exceptional wines with the run from 2015 to 2019 as good as anything the estate has produced.

Tasting Notes and Scores

94

Wine Advocate

A tannic, super-concentrated effort from Pichon-Lalande, this is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot, from yields of only 33 hectolitres per hectare (45 hectolitres in 2000). It possesses a saturated purple colour in addition to a firm but promising bouquet of figs, black currant liqueur, licorice, lavender and background smoky oak. Tannic, classically structured, exceptionally pure and layered as well as tremendously persistent and long in the mouth, this will not be a wine to drink in its youth. Medium-bodied it will require 7-8 years of cellaring. It is a very impressive but structured effort from this famous estate. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025.

Tasted blind at Farr’s 2002 Bordeaux tasting. The nose is rather subdued here, leafy with sous-bois character, tobacco and scorched earth. It does lack some vigour and there is a musty quality that I cannot put my finger on. The palate has rounded tannins, quite Burgundian in texture with black cherries and raspberry, harmonious but slightly under-ripe towards the finish. Tasted October 2009.
