Actually known as Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse De Lalande, this Second Growth Bordeaux was second in our party line-up. Another wow, that scored between 92-93 ( I would agree with that). From Pauillac, it is a slightly more feminine version of the two Pichon’s, with grace, elegance and poise. Similar to the Cos, it needs a few more years to settle the gorgeous tannins and embark on secondary flavors. Right now, fruity nose gives way to a balanced palate of leather, cassis and dark fruit. A long finish was slightly overshadowed by the tannins, which should mellow by 2014 and be in balance with it. Definite 5 star wine that is much more affordable than the 2000 version yet won’t disappoint. Love it.
