2011 Reserve de la Comtesse de Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)
A wine with a seamless tannin structure of ripe tannins. Very fine and polished. Lovely subtle fruit. Well done for second wine of Pichon Lalande.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pichon Lalande's second wine, the 2011 Reserve de la Comtesse offers juicy, cherry, red and black currant notes as well as a medium-bodied, elegant, finesse style. It is already drinking well and should continue to evolve nicely for another decade.
Lightly rugged along the edges, this sports a core of crushed plum and currant fruit, lined with tobacco and briar notes. Accessible now despite the chewy feel, which should soften soon enough. Drink now through 2018. (Web-2014)
