Fairly deep red; sweet ripe cedary nose, elegant; elegant, ethereal, lean, delicious though still quite tannic; quite good length.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Now ready to drink, this moderately dark ruby-colored wine has a rich, toasty, peppery, somewhat minty bouquet, and firm, fleshy, tannic flavors. Medium bodied, with good concentration, as well as the austerity that marks the vintage...
Four stars from critic Michael Broadbent. 91 points Neil Martin: "Tasted at the Fine Wine Experience’s Pichon-Lalande vertical in London. Mature tawny rim. The nose is not showing the same level of brightness that the previous bottle last year. Very austere, leafy with tobacco and leather, less of the black fruits that before. The palate is still commendable with very fine balance, racy acidity, a little sharpness in the attack, firm tannins, still masculine and perhaps foursquare but showing good vigour and refinement towards the finish. This remains a very fine but linear ’66 Pauillac. Tasted December 2008." (Wine Journal)
