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

Good ruby-red. Sexy but youthfully restrained aromas of dark berries, black cherry, violet, licorice, graphite, herbs, bitter chocolate and menthol. Densely packed but quite firm, even a bit pinched, with a slight tart edge to its fine-grained flavors of black raspberry, licorice and fresh herbs. Juicy, nicely balanced, elegant wine with silky tannins and excellent length. But comes across as almost too polished, and a bit herbal today. This needs time in bottle to unwind.
