This is powered by tannins while also keeping its fresh fruit intact. There is a mineral texture thats layered with a juicy fruit character on the finish. - R.V. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 750ml

Purple intense color. Aromatic fine and subtle nose. Finally I find it back It appears much more precise than 2005 and 2006. Beautiful on entry it evolves with good density very fruity and finely mellow. After the mid-palate the body slightly fades and the wine shows a slight vividness that should disappear during barrel ageing. In any case I welcome back the rebirth and precision.

Produced from 41 hectoliters per hectare, which is low for the estate, the wine is an assemblage of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Flowers, 5 spice, cassis, truffle, coca and tobacco scents open the aromati... Jeff Leve. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 1500ml

Wine Advocate ReviewA distinctive bouquet of violets, soy, pepper, blackberries, cassis, and tree bark gives this 2001 a singular style. This dense ruby/purple-colored blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, and a whopping 14% Petit Verdot exhibits plenty of structure, wonderful sweetness, a closed style, but a rich, textured, persistent character. The unusually large percentage of Petit Verdot gives the wine more structure and less initial charm. This beauty needs some time in the cellar. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018Wine Tasting NotesThe vintage is a structured winechunky, solid and perfectly balanced. The purity and finesse of its tannins give it a texture that is rich, fleshy and silky.

Vintage: 1995 05/11/2011

What sumptuous pleasures await those who purchase either the 1996 or 1995 Pichon-Lalande. It is hard to choose a favorite, although the 1995 is a smoother, more immediately sexy and accessible wine. It is an exquisite example of Pichon-Lalande with the Merlot component giving the wine a coffee/chocolatey/cherry component to go along with the Cabernet Sauvignon's and Cabernet Franc's complex blackberry/cassis fruit. The wine possesses an opaque black/ruby/purple color, and sexy, flamboyant aromatics of pain grille, black fruits, and cedar. Exquisite on the palate, this full-bodied, layered, multidimensional wine should prove to be one of the vintage's most extraordinary success stories. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2020.

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.*
