Chateau Pichon Lalande

pichon reserve (de la comtesse) pauillac 2015 750ml

$74.99

The second growth of Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, the Reserve de la Comtesse, was created and sold for the first time in 1973. Second growths represent between 20 percent and 50 percent of the total production of the Chateau. From the same soil, the second growth benefits from the technology and reputation of the great wine. They are generally excellent wines, though less robust and long-lasting than their elders. The archives kept at Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande mention the existence of a second wine as early as the 19th century. In October of 2006, Madame Lencquesaing, owner of Pichon, joined forces with Champagne Louis Roederer, thus opening a new chapter in the history of Reserve de la Comtesse.

Technical Information:
Appellation: Pauillac
Varietal(s): 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot

 

Critical Acclaim

WE94, Wine Enthusiast

"There are plenty of tannins here along with fresh black currant fruits. This wine is structured and firm in the style of a Pauillac. But it also has a softer side, with elegance and light. This wine will develop relatively quickly over the next 10 years."

 

JS93, James Suckling

"This is an impressive second wine. It shows a lot of vibrant red berries, blackberries and darker plum fruits. The palate is impressive for the vibrant and lively acidity cast amid sturdy but supple tannins. Second wine from Pichon-Lalande. Try from 2021."

 

JD92, Jeb Dunnuck

"The second wine of Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is the 2015 Reserve De Comtesse De Lalande and it’s a beautiful wine in 2015 that surpasses most Château’s grand vin. A blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it reveals a deep ruby/purple color as well as medium to full-bodied notes of cassis, plums, ground herbs and spring flowers. This is a ripe, sexy, opulent second wine that’s ideal for drinking over the coming 10-15 years."
