Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande - Pauillac 'Pichon Comtesse Reserve' - 2017


Formerly known as ‘Reserve de la Comtesse’, the estate’s second wine is now known as ‘Pichon Comtesse Réserve’.

'This is a wonderful second wine, and a real success in a vintage where second wines are often punching below their weight. It's rich, plump, floral-edged and above all extremely drinkable. It has a juicy frame and it delivers. A 2% pinch of Petit Verdot adds spice (and is added only after the press wine, the absolute final step to add depth, if needed). They used no secondary fruit at all. This should be good to go in five to six years. Tasted several times. Drinking Window 2022 - 2034.' - Decanter

This is one of our favorite estates in Pauillac. The 'Pichon Comtesse Reserve' is a great value and super consistent wine that never disappoints.
