All Vintages of this wine

2015 was an exceptional year for Chateau Pichon Longueville Comptesse Lalande. The 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot blend carries great potential and remarkable complexity. The 2015 Chateau Pichon Longueville Comptesse Lalande presents a deep purple colour with shades of violet and lilac. The complex and ripe nose exudes strong black fruits and dark chocolate notes, followed by subtle hints of dry fruits, cedar, and tobacco. The generous palate offers a lovely intense, ripe acidity, with touches of blueberry and cassis, all the while carrying an incredible range of flavours.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot aged for 18 months in barrels, 60% new, the 2015 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande displays a medium to deep garnet-purple color and is elegantly fruited with crushed red currants, black raspberries and cassis with touches of lavender, rose hips, tilled soil, fungi and charcuterie. Medium-bodied, finely crafted, remarkably pure and beautifully poised, it has a firm frame of very fine-grained tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing on a lingering mineral note.
