Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Pauillac 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"With signs of new wood on the palate, this is a wine that maintains the polished feel of the wines from Pichon Lalande. It has a stronger presence of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend than in the past, making it more structured than its predecessors, with a dominance of black currant flavor.

Full-bodied, impressively endowed, and less sexy and velvety than normal, this is a somewhat different style of Pichon Lalande than most readers have been used to....95+" WA 03/13 "This reminds me of the excellent 1996 or 1986 PL. There’s a velvety and firm texture to this with a bright, citrus acidity and dark fruits. Full and super velvety and long. Racy and very pretty. Such power and clarity that shows the power and tenderness of PL...94-95" JS 05/11
