Chateau Pichon Lalande 2012 Pauillac Bordeaux Wine 75cl


Pichon-Lalande 2012 Bordeaux has been classed by many wine critics as the Chateau's best wine since 2002.

The nose is loaded with floral, cassis, boysenberry, earth, olive and tobacco notes. Powerful, graceful, sensuous, rich, fresh, it is unusually full-bodied for a wine from this estate. It is pure, refined and offers silky, velvet textures.

Very rich and round and flattering. There is ripeness and real charm here too. Impressive length. Scores of Critic reviews from the very best.


Pairs well with…

  • Duck
  • Lamb
  • Parmesan
  • Red Meat
  • Venison
Wonderful nose of wet earth, mushrooms and berries. Full to medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Sleek and polished. Needs two to three years of bottle age to soften. 59% cabernet sauvignon, 28% merlot, 8% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot.
Score: 92 James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2015

The grande dame, the 2012 Pichon Lalande represents only 50% of their harvest production. It has soft, round tannins, endearing elegance, and up-front fruit. It is not a blockbuster, but its lush, richly fruity style is charming and seductive, with raspberry, blueberry, mocha and blackcurrant fruit and a deep ruby/purple color. This medium-bodied, supple-textured wine is surprisingly precocious and forward, and therefore best drunk over the next 15 years. The final blend was 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Drink: 2015-2030.
Score: 90 Robert Parker, RobertParker.com (218), April 2015

As it always is, the 2012 Pichon Lalande is a wine of pure and total seduction. The 2012 is neither the biggest nor most complex Pichon Lalande, but it is among the most pleasurable wine in this tasting, especially for near and medium-term drinking. Silky and medium in body, with lovely brightness, the 2012 has so much to offer. 2020 - 2042
Score: 93 Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, October 2017
