Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

The Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande embodies the elegance and refinement of Pauillac wines. It is a property classified Second Grand Cru in the official classification of Bordeaux wines of 1855. For over three centuries, this illustrious wine estate has been shaped by generations of enthusiasts, with meticulous attention paid to the quality of the terroir and the family's exceptional expertise.

The history of Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande dates back to the 17th century. In 1689, Pierre de Mazure de Rauzan, an influential wine merchant, acquired the vineyards and erected the Domaine that bears his name today.

Description Réserve de la Comtesse 2016.

With its deep, intense color, this wine seduces us with its incredibly fine nose. Notes of black berries and licorice mingle. In the background, we can also detect a hint of menthol. On the palate, it is elegant and well-balanced. The attack is seductive and the body supple. Tannins are present but relatively velvety. Black fruit aromas emerge with greed and stretch through to the very persistent finish.
