K&L Notes

PLEASE NOTE: This product is 6 bottles in its Original Wooden Case (OWC), sold only as a 6-bottle case to protect ideal provenance. If the wines must be shipped, they will be sent in pulp shippers to protect the bottles, with the wood case shipped separately. Will Call or Local Delivery orders can be handled as intact OWCs. Please detail any special handling requests at checkout online, or call us with specific instructions. 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 the stars of Pauillac, the color is an inky purple hue, the nose is concentrated with dark black and blue fruits, slowly notes of licorice, roses, violets, and scorched earth seep through. The palate is just as concentrated with black fruits, while layer upon layer of licorice, graphite, leather and savoriness peek out. The tannins are somehow super fine while adding powerful structure, and the finish is incredibly long.

    It is hard for me to know what to write in the presence of such perfection. This great vintage for Pichon Lalande is almost creamy in its perfect integration of gracefully ripe cassis fruit and the best quality, cleanest gravel minerality- young Bordeaux like this was simply beyond my imagination before tasting this. The finish is near endless and has the kind of expansion and queue de paon that I thought only existed in the greatest of Burgundy- not Bordeaux! Cinnamon and I will have to move some of our wine budget around to get some of this masterpiece.

    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
