We love these so-called off vintages from the classic producers because you get much more bang for your buck. '81 Pichon is a long time K&L favorite. Robert Parker says… 'The 1981 is a very successful wine, with a more compact aromatic and flavor profile than the 1982. In that sense it is more classic than the flamboyant 1982. Unlike many 1981s, Pichon Lalande achieved wonderful ripeness, and the result is a medium-bodied, richly fruity, fragrant wine without the greenness and astringent tannins that so many 1981s possess. The finish is long and supple. (Aug-1992). The Wine Spectator says... 'Harmonious and delicious. Entices with aromas of spice and fruit. Medium in body, with medium, velvety tannins and a tobacco, berry aftertaste (Nov-1997)'
