K&L Notes

Neal Martin writing for Vinous: "The 2017 Pichon-Lalande was picked from 7 September to 2 October and underwent a 23 day cuvaison period. It is intense on the nose, the new oak coming through a little strongly since the sample came from a new barrel, the final blend consisting of 60% new wood. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, the Cabernet Sauvignon driving this alone with layers of black fruit laced with cedar and graphite. It is a very 'Pauillac' Pichon Lalande, less opulent and giving than recent vintages and more in the style of say, the 1996 or 2010. There is very good persistence on the saline finish but it is clearly a wine that is going to require more cellaring than its peers. Tasted four times in total, each time this gained more substance and density." (93-95, 05/2018)

    Outside of the first growths candidate for wine of the vintage. Tasted twice and outstanding both times. A serious wine with layers of deep, sweet grapey fruit. Lovely mid palate texture and length. This wine is a fantastic combination of power, concentration and elegance. Ralph Sands

    7% loss here. 70%CS. Spicy, cedary aromas and flavors. Good weight on the palate. Lovely, spicy, lush wine-like they made in the 80s I love this wine—they are doing great at Pichon Lalande these days. Better than their 2015 for sure.
    Drink from 2022 to 2032

    There is no shortage of fans of Pichon Lalande at K&L, and it is wines like the terrific 2017 that show why. There are no qualms calling this one of the wines of the vintage. The aromas are complex with wood, pine, and wild cherry. There is tons of red plum and spice on a dense, compact, dense, and linear palate. It is layered in way that shows immense potential and pedigree, and both samples tasted showed the same upside. Superb. Drink 2025 to 2040+.
