Tasted at the Fine Wine Experience’s Pichon-Lalande vertical in London. Showing a lot of maturity with its wide tawny rim, the nose is fully mature with singed leather, wild mushroom, green leaves, perhaps a little lean BUT give it 30 minutes in the glass and wow, what a wonderful espresso-scented nose! The palate is medium-bodied with good acidity, perhaps a little pinched and lean and if I recall showing better 3-4 years ago. Hints of blackberry, leather and a little thyme. But there is elegance and a sense of harmony towards the finish. This is still a decent Pauillac for the 1981 vintage and no doubt given it value, worth every penny. But drink soon. Tasted December 2008. (NM)
Harmonious and delicious. Entices with aromas of spice and fruit. Medium in body, with medium, velvety tannins and a tobacco, berry aftertaste. (JS)
