A walk down memory lane in the year of 2012 where we stayed at the beautiful Chateau Baron. Opening a classic Pauillac Bordeaux. Dark purple ruby red color. A black fruit forest floor with a cedar and funky barnyard nose. Has an initial blackberry tar taste lingering of graphite and pencil lead and long finish.; drinks young and can definitely go another 20 years. Decanted about 90 mins. Enjoying with bruschetta and toasted sliced baguette with a two year aged in a cave Gouda cheese. A worthy initial tasting of this great Bordeaux! — 16 days ago
The 1989 Chateau Pichon- Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is absolutely extraordinary at this stage in its development. Automatically quite stunning, there are notes of white rose, dark berry compote, leather and smoky undertones take their shape in the glass. Once on the palate this shines with its silky, luxurious texture that entices. A beam of salinity connects with the loaded dark fruit, coffee ground and earthy flavors. Simply gorgeous now, this is nowhere near finished. Enjoy this magical Pichon-Lalande over the next fifteen years. Drink 2019-2035- 97 — 3 months ago
Dinner with some dear friends at Lucio’s BYOB. Two couples, each couple brought 3 bottles.
Another one of my contributions. Didn’t take nearly as long to open up as the last bottle of this I had 👌🏻 paired nicely with short rib & risotto. — 7 days ago
A stunning wine with all the notes singing, this is the time to drink this vintage before the profile mellows out. Pair it with a coffee rubbed steak for the full essence of this wine! A real work of art! — a month ago
Located on southern slopes of Simonsberg, owned by May-Eliane de Lencquesaing, former owner of Bordeaux Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse. Lemon color with aromas of stone and citrus fruits, adding slight spice. On the palate flavors of ripe apple, pineapple and lemon with nutmeg and smoky toasty notes, full-bodied with medium acidity. Medium+ finish, good balance. Tasting Sample. — 2 months ago

Friday night is here and I have opened the 2015 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Réserve de la Comtesse a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.
The nose is is rich in dark fruit, black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black plum, mocha, tar, cedar and dark rich soil.
On the palate the dark fruit continues through with black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, licorice, oak, graphite and rich earthy notes.
This wine is full bodied with a silky mouth feel, medium + acidity and medium + fine tannins that lead to a long dark fruit earthy finish. Have a great weekend, stay safe and have some nice wines. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 16 hours ago
