Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with tightly wound black fruit and earthy layers, framed by ripe, fine-grained tannins and lovely freshness making for a long, lively finish. Classic! - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Roederer Estates had owned Pichon Comtesse for three years prior to the 2009 vintage, having taken over in 2006, with Gildas d'Ollone as managing director and Thomas Do-Chi-Nam as technical director. Together, they created a stunning, lyrical 2009 that just begs to be savoured. It’s ripe and intense, rippling with juicy blackberry and blackcurrant fruit and touches of violet on the nose. A beautifully balanced wine. Read more at https://www.decanter.com/wine-reviews/france/bordeaux/chateau-pichon-longueville-comtesse-de-lalande-pauillac-27769#5PLG4cxSyM17VzKI.99

A seductive wine deliciously ripe with the softest juiciest fruit over smoky new wood. The wine shows intense fruit as well as a soft Merlot core. The tannins are beautifully integrated in this ripely sweet wine.

(94+ points) What a nose of dried spices, even chilies, with currants and blackberries. Full bodied, with ultra-fine tannins and a compacted fruit structure. Pretty length. Very fine indeed.

Pretty length. Very fine indeed. Classic nose with the Petit Verdot spice. Try after 2019.

The 2009 Pichon-Lalande offers copious scents of boysenberry, cassis and blue fruit on the nose, a little smudged compared to the Pichon Baron but very pure. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very rounded in the mouth thanks to the precocious Merlot content, sage and orange rind developing towards the caressing finish. A very sensual Pichon-Lalande, tempting. A great wine although the 2010 has the upper hand. Tasted at BI Wines & Spirits' Ten Year On tasting. -- Neal Martin

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Pichon Lalande '09 has a far more understated bouquet with black cherries, pencil shavings, cedar and mint - classic Pauillac in other words, but very intense and precise. The palate is understated on the entry. This is very elegant, refined, very Lafite-like in style with a harmonious, citrus fresh finish that is long and sensual.

The tannins have moved to the softer side as well. The wine is medium-bodied, rich and concentrated with layers of sun drenched, luscious, sensual, ripe, opulent fruits. The finish has a bit of dust to the tannins, which does not take away from the silkiness found here. Another 5 years will add even more refinement and secondary nuances.

The ripe red currant, blackberry and boysenberry fruit is layered with black licorice snap, fruitcake and plum sauce notes. Has the fleshier edge of the vintage but retains a solidly racy graphite spine through the finish. A step behind the '10 in density and energy, though hardly a slouch.--Non-blind Pichon Lalande vertical (July 2014). Best from 2018 through 2035. 15,000 cases made. — JM

Dark red color with slight pink hues. The nose opens with rose petals mocha and roasted meats that linger as strawberries cassis currants and mint appear. Soft accents of leather and sweet oak emerge later. The palate is long displays robust tannins and has nice flavors but is lacking some of the complexity that great vintages of Pichon Lalande develop. Nevertheless this is still a showy wine that needs time. Give it 3-5 years and enjoy over the next two decades.
