Lot #29. Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 1988

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 92 NM.
"Tasted at the Fine Wine Experience’s Pichon-Lalande vertical in London. This has an attractive . . . nose with tobacco, graphite, cedar and a touch of earthiness coming through. That graphite scent becomes more intense with time. The palate is medium-bodied, very well balanced, masculine but a nice sense of tension. Touches of burnt toast, savoury fruits and sour cherry towards the finish. A sense of elegance here, paradigmatic of a great austere 1988." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, Sep 2009
Notes: Upper shoulder, wine stained and lightly wrinkled capsule, lightly scuffed label, sign of past seepage
