Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, Pauillac 2017

RRP £550

Once again, a Pauillac producer makes favourable comparisons with the 2015, with picking dates seen as the key, and rigour in all areas resulting in a small but impressive crop. Archetypal Comtesse elegance and attention to detail; gravelly, leafy and then with a generous flow, fruit and tannin already harmonious and rounded, Pauillac class descanted with symphonic scope.
