Caressing and finessed tannins, with a pronounced floral character to the Cabernet Sauvingon, fragrant tomato leaf and iris alongside the dark cassis and bilberry fruits. Love this, totally delivering on the potential of...

The 2014 Pichon Comtesse de Lalande has a gorgeous bouquet with a mixture of red and black fruit, scents of pencil box and wild hedgerow, gaining intensity in the glass. It is a little more opulent than the Pichon Baron...

Aromas of cassis bush and shaved chocolate with berries. Full body, velvety-textured tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Tangy undertones with fresh acidity. Drink in 2020.

The 2014 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is medium to deep garnet-brick in color. Notes of black cherry compote, preserved plums, and incense slowly drift from the glass, with underlying hints of cedar, violets...
