The 2006 Pichon Longueville Comptesse de Lalande combines finesse and great Medoc wines tannins. This Pauillac exudes a mix of raspberry, violet, cherry juice expressions, along with cigar notes. The balanced and firm structure shows a remarkable potential for long-term ageing. A rare wine, the 2006 Pichon Longueville Comptesse de Lalande elegantly conveys the quality of an ostensibly dry year.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at the property, the 2006 Château Pichon-Lalande has a voluminous bouquet with outgoing blackberry, cassis and violets scents, a touch of boysenberry jam tucked just underneath, although it does not quite have the delineation of the Lynch Bages. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This feels very composed in the mouth, quite fresh with well-judged acidity, harmonious and tensile on the finish. This deserves a higher score than I awarded out of barrel and it continues to improve year by year. Tasted April 2016.
