Winemakers Note

Pichon Comtesse, the power of Pauillac, the feminity of La Comtesse Since its foundation in 1689, only three families have been at the helm to guide Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande and its wines towards a greater renown. The Rouzaud family, founder and owner of the Louis Roederer Champagne House, has presided over the destiny of this estate since 2007, determined to build on what has been achieved and to take this Second Grand Cru Classé of 1855 to even higher levels of quality and prestige. Ideally located in Pauillac, on the banks of the Gironde Estuary, the Pichon Comtesse vineyard covers 102 hectares (252 acres). Guided by the quest for excellence, the teams launched a global replanting program of the vineyard in 2009, which continues today. Each replanted plot is cultivated according to biodynamic practices and the conversion of the estate to Organic Farming was launched in 2021. A new winery based on gravity flow was built in 2013, allowing very high precision plot-by-plot vinifications. Pichon Comtesse's wines are characterized by the remarkable balance of a Pauillac wine with a unique character. Straightforward, precise and elegant, they possess a powdery texture, comparable to silky cashmere, which sets them apart. Over the last few vintages, the quality of the wines produced here has considerably improved, as the press unanimously acclaimed. The 2021 is, in our opinion, perfectly in line with this trend. Rare and precisous, this vintage was nevertheless complex and demanding for the property, as Nicolas Glumineau, General Manager & Winemaker of Pichon Comtesse, can testify: "2021, Rare and precious The torments of unpredictable and dreadful weather tested our certainties, our perseverance and our conviction to convert Pichon Comtesse to organic farming. It took everything we had to draw on our inner strength and find the vital force of this superb terroir to produce a unique vintage. Take notice... it brings together the wrath of heaven, the soul of the earth, the glory of the vine and the will of man! 2021 will be forever engraved in our minds..." Nicolas Glumineau, CEO & Winemaker Pichon Comtesse 2021, mineral and heroic vintage Nicolas Glumineau tells you about this vintage: https://bit.ly/PichonComtesse2021 The silky intensity and graceful nobility of the Cabernet-Sauvignon; the delicacy and freshness of the Merlot; the elegance of the Cabernet Franc; the charm and vigour of the Petit Verdot… The 2021 vintage of Pichon Comtesse is finally unveiled. The typical Pauillac nose blends bewitching floral notes, which are also on the palate. Unctuous, with well-coated tannins that give this wine a voluptuous body. Also noteworthy is the savoury, dynamic finish that characterises this Grand Vin . To be noted, Pichon Comtesse is among Antonio Galloni's favorite wines in this vintage: an "epic Pichon Comtesse".
