The Second Wine of the prestigious Second Grand Cru Classe of Pauillac, the La Reserve de la Comtesse 2018 is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (53%), Merlot (42%), Petit Verdot (4%) and Cabernet Franc (1%). The wine is aged for 12 months in oak barrels (40% new oak).
At the tasting, the La Reserve de la Comtesse 2018 seduces with its captivating aromatic bouquet, evolving notes of ripe black fruits. Peppery and minty notes bring a nice freshness. On the palate, the wine evolves great flexibility and generosity, revealing very tasty fruit of great aromatic purity. The perfectly melted tannins endow the wine with an elegant and refined structure, presenting a beautiful frame. With great elegance and persistence, the wine stretches long into the finish.
