Managed by the Pichon Lalande team nowadays. Powerfully fruity wine - more fruity than most of this type. Racy, elegant and flirtatious. Lovely texture and more approachable than most. If Potensac is masculine stereotype, this is certainly stereotypically feminine. 16.5/20 points
This property (which borders Lafite, Mouton, and Pontet-Canet) is owned by the proprietors of Pichon-Lalande. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, the 2000 is an elegant, nicely textured, smoky, sweet wine offering scents of caramels intermixed with black currants, cherries, cedar, and licorice. Supple-textured and lush, it should be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years. A sleeper of the vintage. (RP)
Black cherry, cassis, spices and licorice on the nose. Lush and spicy, with very good depth of flavor and vinosity. Complicating hints of minerals and tobacco. Quite full for this wine, and ripely tannic on the finish.
