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
94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012
Dark red. Sexy aromas of redcurrant, smoke, mocha, espresso and tobacco, with darker berry notes emerging as the wine opens in the glass. Rich, lush and seamless but not yet filled in, with its berry flavors complicated by earth and herb elements. Not the last word in concentration, but this sexy Pauillac is sweet, shapely and remarkably accessible today. Finishes long, suave and palate-coating, with perfumed red berry flavor and an obvious chocolatey quality from the merlot component.
