Description :

Deep and full-bodied, with fabulous concentration and a sweet, opulent texture, this wine was singing in full harmony when I tasted it in January. Given the wine's abnormally high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, I would suspect it will close down. It possesses plenty of tannin.

Château Pichon Comtesse de Lalande

Château Pichon Comtesse Grand Cru Classé Pauillac   Pichon-Lalande had been acquired by none other than the Rouzard family of Roederer, the family acquiring a majority share of the estate, as well as in Chateau Bernadotte, also run by the de Lencquesaing family.

Delon acquired another 5 hectares. The major part of the vineyard is situated to the west and south of Pichon-Baron, on typical Gunzien gravels over a deeper clay and some very deep limestone and sandstone.

The vines are 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, an impressive 12% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot. The fruit is harvested by hand, before being destemmed and crushed, and then fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, with a cuvaison usually lasting between 18 and 24 days. As the year draws to a close, May-Eliane and consulting oenologists Jacques Boissenot and Hubert de Boüard (the latter best known for his extended and highly successful stewardship of Angélus) earmark the wines for grand vin, Chateau Pichon-Longueville, Comtesse de Lalande (to give it its full title...about 35 000 cases per annum), or the second wine, Réserve de la Comtesse (about 6 000 cases per annum).

Some wines, particularly those from young vines, are excluded completely. The grand vin goes into Allier and Nievre oak, 50% new each vintage, for a period of up to 18 months, the second wine sees 25% new oak. There is a racking every three months, and a fining with egg white prior to bottling.


Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 96 points
"The 1996 Pichon-Lalande is just as awesome from bottle as it was from multiple cask tastings. For Pichon-Lalande, the percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon is atypically high. This wine normally contains 35-50% Merlot in the blend, but the 1996 is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot. Only 50% of the estate’s production made it into the grand vin. The color is a saturated ruby/purple. The nose suggests sweet, nearly overripe Cabernet Sauvignon, with its blueberry/blackberry/cassis scents intermixed with high quality, subtle, toasty new oak. Deep and full-bodied, with fabulous concentration and a sweet, opulent texture, this wine was singing in full harmony when I tasted it in January. Given the wine’s abnormally high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, I would suspect it will close down. It possesses plenty of tannin, but the wine’s overwhelming fruit richness dominates its personality. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2025." (1999)
