2014 Pauillac, 2nd Cru Classe, Bordeaux

The 2014 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is a Pauillac dominated by 65% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is truly singular on spicy hints, result of the quite important proportion of Petit verdot, 6%, completed by 7% Cabernet Franc and 22% Merlot. The wine is aromatically generous, almost extravagant. The Merlot is strong, frank, yet fresh. The swirl reveals an ample and complex Pauillac. The palate offers a great texture with a precise tannic structure composed of lingering tannins; this backbone gives a lot of vibrancy to the whole. Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon perfectly transpose their complexity in this vintage that allowed a perfect ripeness of the grapes. This fine Pauillac wine is balanced and offers a serious ageing potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande has an expressive bouquet with lively blackberry, cedar, flint and graphite aromas that are not powerful, yet display admirable precision. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, the Merlot content lending this Pauillac its trademark fleshiness and roundness, yet there is clearly structure here (not always a trait of this Pauillac growth). It will develop more complexity and personality with bottle age, but at the moment you can sit back and just admire the cohesion and superb length. Winemaker Nicolas Glumineau has overseen a quite wonderful Pichon-Lalande, one with inbuilt longevity.
