Chateau Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Pauillac 2nd Grand Cru Classe 2016
2016 Chateau Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Pauillac, 2eme Grand Cru Classe, 750ml: The 2016 Chateau Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is a stunning wine from one of Pauillac's most renowned estates. On the nose, it offers aromas of black fruit, graphite, and cedar, with a touch of floral and spicy notes. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and rich, with silky tannins and a long finish. This is a wine of great elegance and balance that will continue to evolve over the years.
This wine is full of freshness and life as well as serious tannins and structure. The two sides complement each other to give a wine that has power as well as delicious black fruits and acidity. With the tannins it will age well. Drink this balanced wine from 2025. Roger Voss
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) -
One of the greatest wines that this estate has produced in the modern era, the 2016 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is a brilliant classic that no Bordeaux lover is going to want to do without. Mingling aromas of cassis and plums with notions of licorice, sweet tobacco leaf, rich soil tones, licorice, cigar smoke and violets, it's full-bodied, seamless and complete, with huge concentration, bright acids and a long, penetrating finish. Standing out for its unerring precision, impeccable balance and ineffable sense of completeness, it should prove almost immortal. - Reviewed by William Kelley
