Pichon-Lalande is the single hottest property in the Médoc right now. Although the Chateau has a long and esteemed history, a Second Growth in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, no less, it is the winemaking today that is taking the property to new heights. If you are looking to treat yourself with a wine that is truly world class in every sense, then look no further. The wonderfully nuanced, finessed 2014 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande exudes pedigree. Crème de cassis, licorice, lavender and sweet spices are front and center, while beams of supporting tannins and acidity give the wine its energy and overall tension. All of the elements are simply in the right place. Powerful and also remarkably delicate, the 2014 Pichon Comtesse might very well be the wine of the vintage on the Left Bank. Don't miss it!

Last of the red wines at Table #2 at Oakton Wine Shops Bucket List Tasting.

Deep garnet red. Tight to start on the nose with earthy characteristics, rustic, dark cherries, leaves, mushrooms and a touch of barnyard. Needed some time to open up with more red berries. Rounded tannins (7/10) with quite a bit of acidity. Earthy palate with cherries, spices, touch of bell peppers and herbal notes. Medium bodied with a medium plus to long finish. Drink from 2019 till 2029.

Checks all the right boxes... Elegant tannins, soft fruit, graphite and leather. A nice treat for a nice night at home.

Elegant, perfectly structured, a fine fruit compote from the forest floor, backed with graphite at the back of the palate. Enoteca Pinchiorri was magnificent with a wonderful tour of the cellar included. I am going to ask if I can be buried in it.
