Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Pauillac Pre-Arrival 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Only 40% of the crop made it into the grand vin, which achieved 12.95% natural alcohol. The final blend for the 2011 Pichon Lalande was 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. Under the administration of the new owners, the Merlot component has been dramatically reduced in favor of more Cabernet Sauvignon in the final blend. A strong effort, the 2011 boasts a dense ruby/purple color and abundant aromas of black currants intermixed with unsmoked cigar tobacco, serious body, more concentration than most of the classified growths, and a bigger, more structured style that may suggest a subtle change in the winemaking philosophy at this estate. *This impressive wine is one of the vintage’s most interesting efforts*. It should drink well for 15-20 years."Robert Parker (92-94 pts.)*We will notify you on arrival summer 2014.*
