Tasting Notes

"Fruit notes and reserved oak. More positive, integrated oak on the palate and ripe, but not intrusive, fruit. It is all about restraint and finesse with lighter more elegant fruit that is beautifully structured with keen linearity and very fine silky tannins." Xenia Irwin, Waitrose Partner & Wine Buyer

"Warm and ripe, this is a beautifully balanced wine. It is packed with black-currant fruits that are bursting out of the glass. A darker side comes with the tannins and new wood flavors that are still prominent. It looks likely the wine will develop slowly, so don't drink before 2025." Wine Enthusiast

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse-de-Lalande

This historic estate in Pauillac can be traced back to 1688/89. Modern and traditional methods complement each other to produce a prestigious, elegant wine.

For over 250 years Château Pichon Lalande was in the hands of one family until it was bought by the Miailhe Brothers. They continued to improve and expand the estate until 2007 when it was sold to the family-owned Champagne House Louis Roederer. Once the purchase was complete, in 2008, a complete renovation of the estate took place. The winemaking facilities were rebuilt and modernised.

The renovations were finished in time for the 2013 Bordeaux harvest. While the estate owns 89 hectares of vines in the Medoc, only 78 hectares are in production.

Pichon Lalande is also experimenting with biodynamic farming techniques and as of 2013, 6 hectares were already committed to being farmed biodynamically. The wine is aged in 50% new, French oak barrels for an average of 18 months. On average up to 15,000 cases of Chateau Pichon Lalande are produced each year.
