Very good for a 1991. Satisfying and delicious, this shows pretty cherry, chocolate and tobacco flavors and aromas. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins, plenty of toasted oak and a medium finish. Drink or hold.--Pichon-Lalande vertical. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 1997

Pichon-Lalande's 1991 is among only a handful of 1991s worthy of being the "wine of the vintage." Only 30% of the harvest went into the final wine, resulting in a deeper-colored, richer, more concentrated, and complex wine than the 1990, which was atypically light - even for the elegant Pichon-Lalande style. The 1991, which possesses plenty of tannin, displays an opaque, deep ruby/purple color, and a sweet nose of chocolate, cedar, and ripe, plummy, blackcurrant fruit. Round, medium to full-bodied, and opulent (atypical for a 1991), this wine finishes with considerable length and authority. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. The 1991 Pichon-Lalande is one of the stars of the vintage! Feb 1994, www.robertparker.com
