Description
 
How good it is to see significant improvement in Pichon-Lalande's 1993 over the unusual, disjointed 1992. Atypically for Pichon, the 1993 does not exhibit any of the fat, fleshy, succulent Merlot character normally found in this wine's personality. The wine appears to be dominated more by Cabernet Sauvignon than Merlot. Have the vintage's characteristics made the Merlot component less noticeable? Pichon-Lalande, traditionally among the softest, most seductive, and hedonistic wines from St.-Julien, St.-Estephe, and Pauillac, has taken on more structure, as well as a more classic Pauillac aromatic and flavor profile. I hope it is not trying to emulate the style of its across-the-street neighbor and rival, Pichon-Longueville-Baron. The 1993 Pichon-Lalande is a high class, rich, medium to full-bodied Pauillac with firm structure and a well-delineated personality. It should age well for 12-15+ years. Wine Advocate 88-90
