Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Pauillac 2ème Grand Cru Classé

Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) A dense wine, fairly straight, elegant, more in the style of 1988 rather strict, moderate tannins.

Winemaker's Notes

The nose is distinguished by a bouquet of aromas, mixing blackcurrant and violet, vanilla and cinnamon. In the palate, the tannins appear mature and melted, revealing a strong and affirmed structure, a surprising suppleness, perfect harmony and long persistency. The wine is seductive when young without prejudicing its longevity. James Laubé of the Wine Spectator baptised Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, "A First Class Second Cru", a most fitting tribute.
