Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, 2009

RRP £128

Arrestingly coy (if that is not too much of a contradiction in terms), the Comtesse in 2009 is sweet, beguiling, floral, then gradually more confident on the fruit-forward nose. On the palate she brims with sweet, fresh fruit. A crowd-pleaser. I’ve struggled with this vintage of Pichon Comtesse in the past, thinking it should be more defined and refined, but it has found its feet 10 years on (perhaps not surprising given it borders Château Latour, whose 2009 is a masterpiece).
