1979 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2005 Vintage) Good red-ruby color. Raspberry, redcurrant, tobacco leaf and flowers on the nose. Red-fruity and refined in the mouth, showing none of the smoke, animal or chocolate qualities I associate with this chateau. Distinctly delicate and fine, with moderate density and suave, building tannins.
