Pichon-Lalande's 2008 is, in our opinion, the chateau's best wine since 2002.

With big, soft tannins, good fruit concentration, lots of oaky spice and a juicy, fruity finish, this displays classic Lalande elegance with the rounded, plump, fleshy fruit of the vintage.

Not quite as majestic as next-door neighbour Latour's 2008 perhaps, but this is very fine nonetheless.
