1988 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) The wine is a tighter, more tannic and structured version of this famed Pauillac, which often tends to have more of a St-Julien-like personality than most Pauillacs. Structured, backward and tannic, yet showing a fat mid-palate that is more savory, broader and more expansive.
