Delivery Details

Réserve de la Comtesse is the second wine to the famous Pauillac 2nd growth Château Pichon Lalande. This stylish red wine regularly outperforms other prestigious estates' grand vins. Château Pichon Lalande was founded in 1689 and acquired the status of 2ème Cru Classé in the original 1855 classification. The 76-hectare vineyard borders Château Latour and stretches south towards the commune of Saint-Julien. The wines produced here are of exceptional elegance and finesse and their extraordinary charm is renowned. Réserve de la Comtesse de Lalande contains a high proportion of Merlot, making it approachable and giving it a seductively plush texture. 2015 produced a wine that is perfumed, ripe, and silky.

“The 2015 Réserve de la Comtesse is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. It has a very fine, quite sophisticated and pure bouquet with black cherries, cedar and violet aromas, perfumed and sensual. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, rounded tannin that is cloaked by layers of tobacco-tinged black fruit that segues into a long, lightly spiced finish. This is a delightful, quite serious deuxième vin that I suspect will age much longer than drinkers will afford it. Try to give this five years and you will be rewarded. 2020-2035." 90-92 Points - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate

"This is an impressive second wine. It shows a lot of vibrant red berries, blackberries and darker plum fruits. The palate is impressive for the vibrant and lively acidity cast amid sturdy but supple tannins. Second wine from Pichon-Lalande. Try from 2021." 93 Points - James Suckling

"Attractive in its youth, as it often is, the second wine from Pichon-Comtesse ages well, too. This is floral, fine and well balanced with skilfully judged tannins and oak and good underlying structure. Impressive stuff. Drink: 2020-28" 93 Points - Tim Atkin MW

Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
Early bud break in March was followed by cold and wet months and therefore a heavy dose of mildew. Flowering was late in June before a long, dry summer. September and October were equally as dry and sunny providing excellent ripening conditions allowing for optimal maturity during the harvest between the 20th of September and 20th of October.
On the nose, this vintage is deliciously complex with intense floral aromas with wild basil and rosemary savoury notes. The palate is rounded with flavours of strawberry, morello cherry and white tobacco with a fine-tuned finish that is structured, balanced and intense.
Delicious when paired with red meats, especially lamb.
