94 points John Gilman

Our bottle of the 1970 Pichon-Lalande at our vertical tasting in September was outstanding and I fear that I could have given it even more time in decanter to fully blossom before serving. I have drunk a lot of this vintage of Pichon over the years and it remains one of my absolute favorite Médocs from this lovely year. The bouquet is deep, black fruity and it now has a nice touch of meatiness to add to its constellation of cassis, dark berries, cigar smoke, a hint of menthol, tobacco leaf, dark soil tones, iron and coffee bean in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and fairly broad-shouldered for a fully mature Pichon, with a lovely core of fruit, fine soil signature, very good focus and grip and a long, complex and à point finish. First class juice. 94+ (10/2019)
