Description

I bought this on the back of Jancis Robinson's recommendation as one of the very top 1999s.

Neal Martin rated it quite highly too, but Parker is less enthusiastic:

First tasted May-01: sweet ripe fruits on the nose; cherry and cassis. Lacks some depth. Similar style to 1982 but not in same class. Lacks structure but a lovely velvet smooth tannins. Charming Pichon Lalande but more early drinking in style.(20/25) Another bottle in Nov-03: much more vigour on the nose than Pichon Baron. Notes of leather, morello cherry and kirsch. The palate has mdoerate tannins, good grip with cigar box notes. Quite stern and masculine for Pichon Lalande, the Cabernet more prominent than the Merlot. A little dry on the finish. Still this will be more of an early drinking wine from 2005. (20/25) 89-91 points

The 1999 Pichon Lalande performed inconsistently. This wine is a blend of 47% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 7% Petit Verdot. It offers a complex, evolved bouquet of cedar, underbrush, red currants, and spice box. The dark ruby color is not as saturated as many 1999s, and the wine possesses the weight and style of the 1979 and 1981 (both of which are superior to 1999). There is medium body, excellent ripeness, and an angular finish, without the persistence typically found at this chateau. Anticipated maturity: now-2012. (drink 2002-2012) 87 points
