As promised more reviews from the Great 2002 Bordeaux Tasting by The Wine Review…

Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 2002 (2nd Growth)

Smell : Intense nose of rose, plum and raspberries.

Taste : Complex taste of oak, cherries, acidity and tannins.

After-Taste : Significant length of well-structured and smooth tannins.

Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron de Pichon 2002 (2nd Growth)

I still got a bottle of this from one of the Carrefour wine sales 1993 vintage for S$78, hope to find the right occasion to open it.

Smell : A little closed, some blackcurrents, raspberries and strawberries.

Taste : Good fruit of raspberry, slight blackcurrents which is followed by balanced tannins.

After-Taste : Fairly good length of tannins which presents a balanced final pull of astringency.

Chateau Petit Village Pomerol 2002

Smell : Nose was a little closed with blackcurrents and plums.

Taste : Good fruit, slightly sweet and easy to drink.
Smooth with some oak before the finish. Mild tannins.

After-Taste : Finishing a little shorter than I would have expected.
