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
89-92 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012
Purple ruby. Perfumed aromas of spicecake, flowers and coffee. Chewy in texture and a bit peppery, with bright flavors of redcurrant, Christmas spices and oak. Finishes bright and long, with a repeating floral quality. This could use a little more flesh but offers lovely balance and is a very successful wine in the context of the vintage.
