Ch. Pichon Lalande (0.75 L)
NM: Tasted blind at the 2007 Bordeaux horizontal in Southwold. I must admit that I am not a great fan of this vintage for Pichon-Lalande, which should be better. The 2007 has a rather leafy bouquet with raspberry, blackberry and a touch of tobacco, although it would benefit from more vigour. The palate is medium-bodied with a spicy entry, not a wine of great breeding but there is good depth of flavour, although the finish is a little linear and one-dimensional. Fine, if you can abide by a little greenness. Tasted January 2011.
