Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Pauillac 2008
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pauillac|
|Brand||Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande|
Stylish wine, balanced, intensely elegant. It has freshness and also weight, encased in a structure that is poised, beautifully integrating black currant fruit and chocolate flavors.
Builds slowly, as the mesquite and roasted plum aromas slowly give way to more layers of tobacco, hot stone, cassis, chestnut and graphite. The long finish really stretches out with mineral and tobacco notes. Best from 2013 through 2020. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 15,571 cases made.
