Rated 97+ par Robert Parker Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is a little reticent to begin, slowly giving way to notions of warm black cherries, blackcurrant cordial, stewed plums and sautéed herbs with hints of damp soil, tobacco and beef drippings. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with tightly wound black fruit and earthy layers, framed by ripe, fine-grained tannins and lovely freshness making for a long, lively finish. Classic!
The color is deep, ruby in color, the nose exhales aromas of black fruits, cherries, blackcurrant ... On the palate, the wines are seductive, easy, sensual, with an astonishing roundness for a Pauillac, the signature of the great vintage of Château Pichon Lalande
The blend of 35% Merlot in 2011 is not for nothing. Accessible from 2015-2016, the wine still has a good year ahead.
Le conseil de 12bouteilles : Decant this bottle at least 2h before tasting, it is a perfect wine to drink on a red meat, a nice rib of beef!
