Lot #24. Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 1966

Description: Consists of 4 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 92 NM.
"A bottle served blind at the pre-Xmas lunch chez the Good Bishop Gill. A deep garnet core with a thin brick rim. The nose is quintessential ’66, masculine . . . on this bottle, great definition and vibrancy and definitely Pauillac. Cedar developing and then some iodine. The palate is medium-bodied with vibrant acidity, traditional claret at its best. Not complex, but very focused with slight abrasive tannins. Linear, yet wonderfully balanced with good ripeness on the leafy finish. Certainly a classy ’66 at its peak. Very lovers of classic claret." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, Dec 1999
Provenance: The Dominion Cellar
Notes: 1 base neck, 2 very top shoulder, 1 high shoulder, worn, stained, and 1 torn capsules, nicked, bin soiled, lightly scuffed, and wine stained labels.
