One of the wines of the tasting. Fresh and complex, generous in character, with lovely dried cherry and spice aromas that follow through on the palate. Full-bodied, with concentrated fruit and firm tannins, this has a long life ahead.
Fairly deep red; sweetish dense cedary nose, quite intense; quite rich but no blockbuster, has elegance, spicy, complex finish; very good length.
Tasted at the Fine Wine Experience’s Pichon-Lalande vertical in London. This has a dark mahogany core with a tawny rim. The nose is masculine, delineated and meaty, with scents of hot bricks, gravel, tar and earth. Very good vigour and lift with just the right amount of leafiness. The palate is medium-bodied, very well balanced and one of the few 1970 Left Banks to have a degree of elegance and refinement (though not femininity.)... (Neil Martin's Wine Journal)
