Winemakers Note

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande has 92 hectares of vines in Pauillac, in the heart of the Médoc, ideally situated along the Gironde Estuary. In three centuries, only two families have contributed to the worldwide reputation of the château and its wines. The third family, owners of Champagne Louis Roederer, acquired the estate in January 2007. They aim to perpetuate the excellent work done by their predecessors and to attain the ultimate in quality and prestige. Relying on the best of traditional and modern methods, Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande built new winemaking facilities in 2013. The wines epitomise the remarkable balance of Pauillac, with a silky tannic structure along with an expressive and suave aromatic complexity.

On the palate a subtle blend, full-bodied, powerful and great length, with a sweetness that is both seductive and savoury, with a touch of elegance. The flavours confirm these blackcurrant and blackberry notes, with structured, smooth tannins.
