This is powered by tannins while also keeping its fresh fruit intact. There is a mineral texture that's layered with a juicy fruit character on the finish. - R.V.

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.

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.

The dark ruby/plum-colored 2011 Pichon Longueville, Comtesse de Lalande is an elegant, suave, medium-bodied effort with abundant black cherry and red and black currant fruit. Nearly St.-Julien-like in its texture and personality, this is a well-made, finesse-styled Pauillac to drink over the next 10-15 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.
