Wine Maker's Notes

One of the most recognizeable labels of Pauillac, Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is currently helmed by Nicolas Glumineau who made developments like the move towards biodynamic on all newly planted plots. Under the ownership of Champagne Louis Roederer, Pichon Lalande, as it is fondly known to fans, continues to grow from strength to strength.

Tasting Notes

Composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, the 2017 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and is a little closed to begin, soon revealing floral notes of lilacs and lavender over a core of black raspberries, warm blackberries and forest floor plus touches of star anise and stewed black tea. Medium-bodied, the palate is a bundle of energy and tension with softly played tannins and beautiful floral and black fruit layers, finishing with a long-lingering whisper.
