Tasting Notes:

"A perfumed wine, this is full of black fruits that are shot through with acidity. It is bright, soft and only hinting at tannins. This second wine of Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande will develop quickly and become an attractive, fruity wine." WE

Château Pichon-Longueville Lalande is one of the most important Super Seconds and this 2ème Cru Classé Pauillac estate has made tremendous strides in the last 20 years. This is largely due to the energy, drive and ambition of May-Eliane de Lenquesaing, who took over the property in 1978.

Pichon-Longueville Lalande is a 75-hectare property that produces on average 36,000 cases per year. Located in the east of the Pauillac appellation, the vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon 45%, Merlot 35%, Cabernet Franc 12%, Petit Verdot 8%) lie on deep gravel beds underpinned by clay and then sandstone and limestone (part of these vineyards actually reside in the St-Julien appellation).

Aged 12 months in oak, 25% new.

Food pairing
