Description

The 2015 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande displays a medium to deep garnet-purple color and is elegantly fruited with crushed red currants, black raspberries and cassis with touches of lavender, rose hips, tilled soil, fungi and charcuterie. Medium-bodied, finely crafted, remarkably pure and beautifully poised, it has a firm frame of very fine-grained tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing on a lingering mineral note.

Sensual, seductive, silky... There are no superlatives to describe a wine on which many critics agree. It's rare to hear of a Médoc that it's round enough to drink "young." However, the suppleness and finesse of this wine have earned it this reputation. This accessibility is partly due to a large proportion of Merlot (35%), relatively large for the town. Although fleshy and tender, this Pauillac cru remains sufficiently tannic, deep and rich to evolve over the next 10 to 20 years.
