Winemakers Note

Reserve of Pichon Comtesse, the proud ambassador of its elder brother Ideally located in Pauillac, on the banks of the Gironde Estuary, the Pichon Comtesse vineyard covers 102 hectares (252 acres). Here, the vineyard and the wines are managed independently of each other. Each of the estate's plots are tended throughout the year with equal attention to detail and precision before the grapes are harvested and vinified separately. Then comes the time to taste these various expressions of the terroir, an important step during which the specific composition of each wine is blended. In perfect harmony with the Grand Vin, Réserve de Pichon Comtesse, the estate's second wine, offers another interpretation of the unique and singular style of this Pauillac Grand Cru Classé. This subtle and elegant wine is delicately revealed through floral and fruity notes. Its depth and balance, direct yet velvety, give it unique grandeur in which the language of the senses is key. It goes beyond mere taste. Full of charm, it has that extra-special something that makes it stands out as a true ambassador for Pichon Comtesse. Réserve de Pichon Comtesse benefits from the same high quality work as the Grand Vin and includes in its blend young vines recently replanted and located on the greatest terroirs of this vineyard. A true introduction to the Pichon Comtesse style, its high quality combined with its price make it a particularly interesting opportunity. "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 Tasting notes The complex nose evokes raspberry and wild strawberry, but also fresher notes of lilac and citrus, rosemary and liquorice. On the palate, we find the pure beauty of raspberry and cherry, balanced with a light, precise tannic structure that brings definition and an elegant finish.
