About Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande
Of all the "Super Seconds" in Bordeaux, Chateau Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande--Pichon Lalande for short--may be closest to that coveted promotion to First Growth status. We can count on the wines from Pichon Lalande, the sister of neighboring Chateau Pichon-Baron, to be silky, stylish, spicy and sweet, with a sizable dollop of Merlot
93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2009
($135) Bright ruby-red. Aromas of black raspberry, dark chocolate, cedar, licorice and mint. Rich, lush and sweet, with noteworthy depth to the flavors of dark fruits, smoke and chocolate. Wonderfully broad and tactile in the middle palate. Finishes with sweet, dusty tannins and sneaky persistence. This fine-grained, stylish and downright sexy wine is clearly more successful than the 2005.
