Deep ruby. Black currant, Oak nose. Opened up with time and revealed a lovely layer of black fruit, tobacco, leather tastes, meets soft cherry, chocolate.

On this Saturday night I have opened the 2014 Réserve De La Comtesse. 59% Cabernet Sauvignon and 41% Merlot the second wine from Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de la Lalande.

On the nose there is sumptuous dark fruit, blackberry, black cherry, black currant, stewed plums, chocolate, a bit of meatiness and tar.

On the palate the dark fruit continues with blackberry, black cherry, black currant, licorice, cedar, smoky oak, mocha and an earthiness.

This wine has a velvety mouth feel an is medium to full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + fine rounded tannin that leads to a delicious lingering finish. Stay safe and continued enjoyable weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Power and grace, this was a great bottle, opened too soon for sure but was still very enjoyable.

I've always thought this to be one of the better second wines one can buy in Bordeaux. From an unheralded vintage, this is a a tasty and expressive wine that is perfectly drinkable right now. Quite a focused wine with good freshness and finesse.

Surprisingly approachable. Perhaps not one for the ages, but still a value considering BDX pricing.

More complex nose of oak and black fruit, more rounded pallet, smooth but present tannins.
