Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Pauillac 1997
|Brand||Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande|
Wine AdvocateThis hedonistic, luscious, sexy, opulently-textured Pichon-Lalande is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. Exhibiting a dark ruby color with purple nuances, it is open-knit, with plentiful quantities of roasted herbs, smoky oak, vanillin, and creamy black currant fruit. A lush texture, low acidity, and an accessible, velvety-textured style will have many admirers. Consume it over the next decade.
Wine SpectatorA pretty wine, even though it's rather light for this estate. Medium- to light-bodied, with berry, spice and toasted oak character. Soft finish.
