Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, 2018

A tour de force that rivals both Latour and Margaux. At once smooth, supple and elegant, layered and persistent. What a great performance! Tasted twice again, and each time I’m impressed by its sheer elegance and iodine freshness. Alcohol is 14% precisely with just enough balancing acidity and plenty of tannin. “Many things made me think of (the renowned) 2010,” says director Nicolas Glumineau. This 2018 will be legendary.

Score: 96-98
