External Reviews for Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse De Lalande Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac
Despite slightly strange aromas (plum-skin, berry, stewed tomato) this is pretty to taste. Medium to full in body, with round, silky tannins and a tobacco, berry character on the finish. Drink now or hold.
Tasted blind in a peer-group tasting, the Pichon-Lalande showed a ripe plumy nose with blackberry and raspberry, not quite as defined as the sample poured at the château. With time on glass there are scents of cedar wood, a touch of Xmas cake and cassis, all the time gaining vivacity in the glass. The palate is very ripe, beautifully defined with excellent balance. Finesse here, a well-bred Pauillac with a bright, cedar-infused finish that will hopefully just put on a little more weight. Excellent. Drink 2010-2035.
A 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: 2007andndash;2018.
A great, classic Pauillac, with its dark, dense, almost black currant flavors stirred together with immense tannins. The layers of dryness, fresh fruits, acidity and ripeness are all coming together into a magnificent structure. Age for at least 20 years.
The aristocratic structure is there, even if this wine shows youthfully green - both in the stemminess of the young merlot fruit, and the green edge of the tannin. This is tight and lean in structure, with red fruit that shows plenty of staying power. It's the red fruit that lasts now, and will last as it ages. Staunchly Bordelais, this shows great length and harmony.
A megawine, with layers of fruit and various levels of character. This exceptional Bordeaux is full-bodied and very tannic, with masses of rich fruit, berry and tobacco. Very velvety. This powerhouse needs time. Best after 2003.
Plenty of tobacco, berry and cedar aromas and flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, with sweet fruit and refined tannins. Long and ripe fruit on the finish... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 750ml
