Reserve de la Comtesse 2016: A powerful, deep and elegant Pauillac

Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande's second wine, Reserve de la Comtesse is produced in the Pauillac appellation. The vineyard is planted on gravel-based soil, very characteristic of the appellation. Reserve de la Comtesse 2016 is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc. The wine is aged for 12 months, 30% in new wood.

Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande had an interesting 2016. Winter was mild and spring experienced a lot of rainfall, which led to mildew appearing on the vines. Luckily, a period of good weather allowed the grapes to mature. Summer settled in and development continued, without any problems until harvest.

Reserve de la Comtesse 2016 is a very good vintage. Powerful, deep and extremely elegant. To be consumed from 2042-2047.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Reserve de la Comtesse is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with beautiful kirsch, cassis and redcurrants with hints of red roses, black tea, black pepper, chocolate box and cloves. The palate is medium-bodied, very elegant and fresh with gorgeous silken tannins and loads of bright fruit, finishing spicy.
