Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, 2ème cru classé 2019

RRP €149

Nose shows an ethereal, medicinal herbal quality with an ineffable smokiness over sweet, vanilla-laced red cherry fruit. A touch of meaty reduction gradually fades to menthol. Tactile, grainy tannins and bracing acidity chase the fruit, which never surpasses medium weight, through to the finish. Taut and elegant.
