Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, 2eme Grand Cru Classe, Pauillac, Bordeaux, France, 2003 

Initial tasting:

"Very deep purple. Some extremely ripe fruit on the nose. Dense but with attractive, mineral notes. Quite open and lacy. Real substance on the palate. Remarkably gentle and delicate and only then do the tannins push in. The analysis suggests the tannin level is very high but this s not obvious on the palate – well managed! Fresh note of green apples and great depth of flavour. Neat, well put together. More true to the estate's style than overwhelmed by the vintage than at many other properties."

18+/20 points, Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, August 2005

And 9 years later:

"Made from a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot, this spectacular 2003 hits all the sweet spots on the palate. A glorious bouquet of cedarwood, jammy black currants, cherries, licorice and truffle is followed by a dense, opulently textured, full-bodied wine with terrific purity and freshness as well as deep, velvety textured tannins. Enjoy this beauty over the next 10-12 years."

95/100 points, Robert M. parker Jr, Wine Advocate, August 2014
