2005 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande - Pauillac
Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Description
Complexity, elegance and longevity are the hallmarks of this race, they are found every year during the creation of the vintages. The nose is distinguished by a bouquet of aromas, mixing blackcurrant and violet, vanilla and cinnamon. In the palate, the tannins appear mature and melted, revealing a strong and affirmed structure, a surprising suppleness, perfect harmony and long persistency. The wine is seductive when young without prejudicing its longevity.
Wine Spectator: 98 Points
"Beautiful currant, berry and licorice aromas follow through to a full body, with tar and berry character, fine tannins and a long finish. I was expecting a little more from this, but it's still outstanding. Best after 2013." —James Suckling
Wine Enthusiast: 96 Points
"In recent years, Pichon Comtesse has developed an elegance all its own, with great style, smoothing out the real intensity of the wine. This 2005 continues in that tradition, a spice, fruity wine, which has restraint as well as hidden power." —Roger Voss
