K&L Notes

95-98 points Antonio Galloni in Vinous: "The 2018 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is powerful, dense and explosive, with a real sense of vertical lift that conveys energy. Grilled herbs, lavender, inky blue/purplish fruit and spice notes develop in the glass, but it is the wine's balance, purity of tannin and finish that stand out most. In 2018, so many wines lean towards extreme versions of themselves, but Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande remains very much within its classic parameters. The 2018 doesn't quite offer the visceral thrill of the very best recent vintages, but it comes very close. At its purest essence, the 2018 is very Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande. The en primeur sample is shown from 100% new oak, although the wine will have about 60% new wood. Tasted four times." (4/2019)

    One of our favorites from the vintage! Flavors of espresso bean, mocha and coffee jump from the glass. The texture is pure velvet with fruit that nears exotic. The tannins big but remain silky and juicy on the finish. Great freshness and verve! 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot

    Tated five times and great notes everytime. This wine reminds me of the 1983 or the 1989 Pichon. That is saying a lot. Fabulous cassis and cedar aromas with some Asian spice thrown in. So elegant, yet with structure to go a long while. (Their 1983 and 1989 wines we just drank-perfection for 30+ year old wines). This wine is one of our favorites of the vintage. A must buy.
    Drink from 2025 to 2045

    Pichon-Lalande is among the best of 2018. It hit those beautiful red fruit notes that many properties missed, while retaining a super-classic profile that they seem to have perfected over the past few vintages. It is layered, intense, with deep cherry and plum, an fine textured palate, their signature herbal hint, and a long, cascading finish. Another masterclass in structure and style, 2018 Pichon-Lalande was the the highlight of the room most of the five times we were lucky enough to try it.
