Pichon Lalande 1998

Chateau Pichon

19 years

Aromas of tobacco smoke, cedar, cherries, and black currants emerge from the moderately intense, complex bouquet. This wine has evolved nicely, revealing less austerity than it did last year in its medium-weight, delicate personality. Drink it over the next 15-16 years. *** The 1998 Pichon-Lalande was revealing more depth and sweeter tannin than it did last year. A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Franc, it reveals herbaceous cedary notes, along with red and black currants. Black fruits are attractive on the attack, but the wine narrows in the mouth, exhibiting a monolithic style and dry, hard tannin in the finish. It is a Pichon-Lalande with grip, structure, and obvious aging potential, but will it ever reveal the charm and succulence this classified growth generally achieves? Anticipated maturity: 2005-2018.
