The grande dame, the 2012 Pichon Lalande represents only 50% of their harvest production. It has soft, round tannins, endearing elegance, and up-front fruit. It is not a blockbuster, but its lush, richly fruity style is charming and seductive, with raspberry, blueberry, mocha and blackcurrant fruit and a deep ruby/purple color. This medium-bodied, supple-textured wine is surprisingly precocious and forward, and therefore best drunk over the next 15 years. The final blend was 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.

Tasting note


The 2012 Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is a testament to the elegance and charm of Pauillac wines. With a deep, dark ruby-red hue, this wine exudes aromas of bitter liquorice and pencil shavings, leading to a palate that balances mid-weight structure with fine, grainy tannins. The concentrated ripe fruit carries a bitter-liquorice character, intertwined with tobacco leaf notes. The alcohol is well-balanced, ensuring a long finish. This wine, certified biodynamic, is best enjoyed after a two-hour decant, and pairs wonderfully with dishes like roast lamb or beef Wellington.
