The 2016 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is blended of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc aged for 18 months in 60% new oak. Deep purple-black in color, it is a little mute, slowly unfurling to reveal a core of crushed blackcurrants, blueberry compote, and black raspberries with nuances of cinnamon stick, violets, star anise, menthol and pencil shavings plus a waft of fallen leaves. Medium-bodied and super intense in the mouth, the palate bursts with black fruits and savory layers, complemented by red fruit sparks and framed by fantastically ripe, fine-grained tannins, finishing very long with a lingering suggestion of minerality.
The famous Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, "Pichon Longueville" as commonly referred to, comes from the same domain as "Pichon Baron." Beyond their geographical proximity, they are distinguished by their strong personality. Pichon Longueville wine has a soft, fleshy, and tender character that can sometimes make it seem to be a more feminine wine.
Straddling the Saint-Julien river, Château Pichon Longueville vineyards cover an area of 89 hectares, originally just 11 in the Saint-Julien appellation. The other parcels, from Pauillac, are quite diverse and grant the wines their unequivocal complexity and character. The vines take advantage of soil that allows them to reveal their full potential. They are planted on hillsides with gravel and clay from the Garonne. Now owned by Champagne house Louis Roederer, Pichon Longueville remains a noble and prestigious Second Growth.
