=================================


Chateau Pichon Lalande is well known to everyone in the wine industry. The winery is located in Pauillac, the essence of the left bank, next to the five major wineries Latour. As the name suggests, the wine is elegant with feminine beauty, gentle and tactful. It is unique among the masculine Bordeaux wineries.


The history of Chateau Pichon Lalande can be traced back to the 17th century, when the daughter of the Rauzan family married Jacques François de Pichon Longueville who was the Speaker of the Bordeaux City Council. This land was also given to the Pichon family as a dowry and became the original vineyard. The entire 18th century manor was handed over to the hostess to take care of it. With their careful care, it was rated as a second-class estate in 1855.


In 1978, May-Eliane de Lencquesaing took over this beautiful manor. Under her leadership, the production and international reputation of the Château du Picheon rose rapidly, fully demonstrating its second-class estate. Some experts even call Pichon Lalande as Super Second which shows the excellent quality of its red wine. In the past, the winery preferred to add a higher proportion of Merlot grapes when brewing, so that Pichon Lalande wines can show rich fruit flavors and soft and elegant taste when they are young.


==================


Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 2017 composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. Has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and is a little closed to begin, soon revealing floral notes of lilacs and lavender over a core of black raspberries, warm blackberries and forest floor plus touches of star anise and stewed black tea. Medium-bodied, the palate is a bundle of energy and tension with softly played tannins and beautiful floral and black fruit layers, finishing with a long-lingering whisper.

==================


The 2017 Reserve de la Comtesse is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. 


Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it strolls out of the glass with nonchalant notions of preserved red plums, black cherries, kirsch and black raspberries with wafts of wilted roses, cinnamon toast, fallen leaves and tilled soil. 

Medium-bodied, the palate is very pretty, with delicately played tannins and bags of freshness, finishing wonderfully fragrant.
