Réserve de la Comtesse (Pichon-Lalande), Pauillac 2011
93 Points Tim Atkin
Sixty per cent of the crop at Pichon Lalande went into the second wine and the selection policy has worked to good effect, as this is a pretty serious red. Fleshy and opulent, with smoky black fruits, a hint of chocolate and refreshing, slightly grassy Cabernet notes and dense tannins. 8+ years
91 Points James Suckling
A wine with a seamless tannin structure of ripe tannins. Very fine and polished. Lovely subtle fruit. Well done for second wine of Pichon Lalande.
49% Merlot blended with 43% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Petit Verdot.
