The 2011 Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is a testament to the elegance and finesse that Pauillac wines can offer. With a medium body and a suave texture reminiscent of its St.-Julien neighbors, this wine presents a harmonious blend of black cherry, red and black currant fruit. The palate is graced with notes of cassis and ripe blackberry, framed by subtle cedary tannins that contribute to its well-structured profile. The wine's depth of flavor is enhanced by hints of dark chocolate and toasted nuances, while the fresh acidity ensures a lifted and enduring finish. Decanting for an hour is recommended to fully appreciate its complexity. This Pauillac is a delightful accompaniment to rich dishes such as roast lamb or beef bourguignon, as well as a perfect match for mushroom risotto and aged cheeses.
