1990 Ch. Pichon Lalande

A 22 year old wine with deep purple colour. It has quite high intensity aromas of bell pepper attack, smoke, licorice, cedar, black plum and leather. It is dry with medium acidity, alcohol and bodied. Medium tannin which is fine grained in nature. On palate, it gives medium flavours of black cherry, licorice, bell pepper, tea, smoke and cedar wood. Fairly long length with plummy finish. (93) It has good complexity and the wine is fully developed. A nice and mature wine.
