Tasting Notes Pichon Lalande 2005

94

Tasted twice in a week, the Pichon-Lalande 2005 is a lovely, ripe wine that might not possess the thrust or the structure of its peers and yet it is just a delicious wine. The nose here is still young, almost nubile, perhaps with a New World sheen that will ebb away with time. Precocious wild strawberry, plum and raspberry notes gather pace with continued aeration. The palate is medium-bodied and perhaps a little glossier than I recall. It is very well balanced with supple red berry fruit, quite succulent and very pure on the fleshy finish that displays ample length. Lovely. Drink 2015-2030. Tasted February 2013.

What a nose on this, with orchids and currants, this is very perfumed and pretty. Full-bodied, with bright and lively acidity. Rose petals and citrus fruit on the palate give way to a long and intense finish. Wait and see where this goes.

The disappointing 2005 Pichon Lalande reveals a much lighter style than one expects from this estate. However, the new owners, the Louis Roederer/Deutz champagne firm, have recently brought in Hubert de Bouard (from St.-Emilion) as a consultant, and the 2006 appears to be a dramatic improvement over the 2005. For all its greatness, Pichon Lalande previously experienced hiccups in superb vintages, 1990 being a prime example. While good, in the context of the vintage, the 2005 is unimpressive. A blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, and 7% Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this deep ruby-colored effort exhibits a slightly herbaceous nose revealing hints of roasted coffee, cedar wood, cherries, and black currants. Good acidity and elevated tannins give the wine a streamlined, medium-bodied, fresh taste. Anticipated maturity: now-2020.
