The complexity of a balanced and racy red Grand Vin of Pauillac
A vintage of extremes, 2018 will surely be remembered. The prestigious Second Classified Growth of Pauillac - Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande has achieved a truly exceptional vintage in this year.
Blending Cabernet Sauvignon (71%), Merlot (23%), Cabernet Franc (5%) and Petit Verdot (1%) the Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 2018 is aged for 18 months in oak barrels (50% of which is new oak).
At the tasting, the vintage presents the aromatic signature of the great wines of Pauillac. The nose opens with aromas of black and red fruits, especially blackcurrant and raspberry, punctuated by delicate floral fragrances of violet and peony. We also find very nice touches of lemon and smoke notes reminiscent of tobacco or cigar box. On the palate, the wine offers a delightful fruity sensation, evolving plenty of generous texture. The palate is precise, fine and balanced, sporting an elegant frame of tannins with a tight grain. Full of tenderness and generosity, the end of mouth is prolonged into a finish of incredible length. A masterful Pauillac in a great vintage for Bordeaux.
