This has the range of the '61, with similar dried currant, fig and blackberry fruit forming the core, but the tannins are more prominent from the start. Alder and cedar base notes carry the tar-tinged finish, leading to an echo of bitter orange, iron and charcoal as this grows steadily and authoritatively in the glass. A tad longer than the '61. Drink now through 2025. (JM, Web only-2014)
Deep and powerful on the palate, the 1959 Pichon Lalande has held up beautifully. There is a level of textural resonance to the 1959 that is incredibly appealing. This bottle, re-corked at the château in 1981, appears to be less than perfect. Even so, the wine’s depth and integrity are both remarkable. (AG)
