Served with Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich and Jamon Iberico de cebo. Opened and poured. At the very first hour the body was so light, just like a pinot noir. As time ticked away it became heavier, finally a gigantic Pauillac. Still relatively young as tannis was obvious, with hints of graphite, almond and carambole. Guess can be cellared for another decade. Cork condition: Excellent Fill level: Mid neck

About This Producer


Chateau Pichon Lalande, known as one of the greatest Bordeaux vineyards, has been maintained by the same family for more than 250 years. Located in Pauillac, it was deemed a Second Growth wine estate during Bordeaux Classification of 1855. Its location between the Gironde estuary and the Atlantic Ocean is ideal for growing grapes. These two masses of water help keep the air moving, which reduces the chance of rainfall, while the particular microclimate surrounding the Chateau is relatively dry, allowing the grapes to fully ripen on the vine. The climate, concentration of the grapes, and the blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot result in wines with exceptional structure and, therefore, great aging potential. Pichon Lalande's second wine is the Reserve de la Comtesse and its third wine is Les Gartieux.
