Reviews for 2011 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Bordeaux Blend

Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, February 2014
Don’t be fooled by the easy fruitiness of this delicious wine, because underneath the blackberry flavors is a powerfully tannic structure. Opulent and dense, it promises considerable aging. Drink this complex wine from 2018.

A 2011 with blackberry, dark-chocolate and smoked-meat character. Full body, silky tannins and a long, intense finish. All about balance and polish. Very fine. Needs three to four years to soften. Try in 2017.

Warm savory and tobacco leaf notes lead the way, with a cedary frame surrounding the lightly mulled plum and cherry fruit. Cassis bush and tobacco accents are embedded on the finish. Very solid, but lacks extra drive... Warm savory and tobacco leaf notes lead the way, with a cedary frame surrounding the lightly mulled plum and cherry fruit.

78% cabernet sauvignon 8% merlot 12% cabernet franc and 2% petite verdot. Independent sibling of Pichon-Baron this 89-hectare estate borders Chateau Latour. Soils are gravel and clay over deep limestone and sandstone... 78% cabernet sauvignon 8% merlot 12% cabernet franc and 2% petite verdot. Independent sibling of Pichon-Baron this 89-hectare estate borders Chateau Latour. Soils are gravel and clay over deep limestone and sandstone. Aged in 50% new French oak. Deep purple core. The nose exudes notes of blackberry raspberry and crushed rocks. The palate is all about finesse and elegance as the tannins are ultra-refined and the finish is remarkably long. This wine is big rich and balanced. Another very successful vintage at Pichon Lalande in an overall difficult year. Enjoy 2018-2030.
