2003 Reserve de la Comtesse Lalande, Pauillac

SKU #1023659 90 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very ripe and raisiny on the nose. Full bodied, with big velvety tannins and a fruity, juicy finish. So much going on here, this is rich and layered for the vintage. Impressive stuff. Will be better after 2012. Inner quote mark (3/2011)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The only time I tasted the 2003 Reserve de la Comtesse out of bottle, it was somewhat monolithic and superficial, but charming and well-endowed. A 46% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc cuvee, it is well-made... (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2006)

This is a date night wine. Rich and heady fruit fills the nose with a background of spice and floral notes. That same rich fruit covers the palate followed by a long finish of spice and chocolate. Buy a case of this wine to have for each anniversary because it's seductive and has the structure to last.

The second wine of Pichon-Lalande. Robert Parker called the 2003 a “hedonistic sexpot of a Pauillac with loads of density, plenty of ripe fruit, and low acidity in an easy-todrink, seductive style.” As fond as I am of the felicitous phrase, there is no way I can top that. Enjoy.
