External Reviews for Château Des Tourelles Red Bordeaux Blend Lalande De Pomerol
Pichon-Longueville is located on beautiful gravelly soil in the southern part of the commune of Pauillac. In 1694, Jacques de Pichon, Baron de Longueville, married the daughter of Pierre de Rauzan, who originally created the property.Their descendants remained deeply involved with making fine wine, and Raoul de Pichon-Longueville built the present château in 1851.

Large-scaled, rich and deep, with superb chewy ripeness and terrific mineral lift. At once plush and powerful, boasting the texture of a first growth, with a near-perfect sugar/acid balance. The palate-staining finish features substantial ripe, chewy tannins and rising length...96" IWC 07/12
