Grand Vin Pauillac 2015
Superstar Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is according to Robert Parker “one of Pauillac’s most consistently brilliant wines.” And just check out the reviews for their 2015…
98 points, “The 2015 Pichon Comtesse is a towering wine, as it has always been. Rich, sumptuous and totally hedonistic, the 2015 melds together intense fruit with structure. Far from an easy-going wine, the 2015 is going to need a number of years and will then drink well for several decades. Grilled herbs, smoke, new leather and liquorice are some of the many notes that are layered into the dark-fleshed fruit for complexity. As good as the 2015 is today, it also has room to grow. Technical Director Nicolas Glumineau has done a tremendous job with the 2015s at Pichon Comtesse.” – Antonio Galloni
97 points, “I tasted the 2015 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande on three separate occasions rating it 97 twice and 98 once. Checking in as a final blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this is a nuanced style of wine that grows on you with time in the glass, and the larger Merlot component always gives it a more supple, seductive texture. Crème de cassis, black raspberries, spring flowers, leafy herbs and lead pencil notes all flow to a full-bodied, ultra-pure, seamless beauty that builds on the palate, has fine tannin and a great, great finish. As classy as they come, it will continue to impress for two to three decades.” – Jeb Dunnuck
97 points, “This shows spices, pepper, blueberries and blackcurrants on the nose. Full body, very polished tannins and a long and beautiful finish. Shows such gorgeous texture. Precise and transparent. Try in 2022.” – James Suckling
Hailing from an outstanding vintage in Pauillac, this is perfect for those who prefer herbaceousness over juicy fruit, this medium-bodied and beautifully balanced wine displays delicate notes of tar, cedar, black olive and forest floor. Serve with herb roasted lamb – still pink in the middle – and all the trimmings.
