Drink it over the next decade.

Very polished tannins that caress the palate. Full body. It's fruity, pretty and refined. The mineral and berry character comes through in a subtle way. Second wine of Pichon Lalande. Better in 2016.

Red berry fruit, brown spices and iron filing scents only reluctantly emerge, gradually adding weight and in the end the aromatics are very satisfying. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannins and attractive red and black fruit, a little leathery with cedar notes towards the lively finish. This note comes from a second bottle opened, the first was drier and less vigorous. This second bottle is hopefully representative. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 10-Year On Bordeaux horizontal. -- Neal Martin

The Reserve de Comtesse has a pleasant but austere bouquet with dusky black tobacco-infused fruit all with fine definition and vigour. The palate is medium-bodied with a satisfying Merlot component neatly offsetting the ripe Cabernet Sauvignon. Good body here, pleasing length with a dash of spice on the finish.

Vibrant and silky, this slides down almost too easily, with delicious red and black currant fruit laced with hints of anise, violet and black tea. A flicker of singed balsa wood keeps the finish going along.
