The 2010 Pichon Longueville Comtesse Lalande is a rare and elegant Pauillac wine. The nose gives off fresh, intense, and dense dark fruits scents suggesting a lovely texture, with a bursting wide range of aromas: cherry, dark berries, raspberries, cinnamon, and violet. The neat and vibrant attack is followed by a full, firm structure without being coarse. On the contrary, the tannins are extremely refined albeit significantly thick. Overall, the 2010 Pichon Longueville Comtesse Lalande offers freshness, rich flavours, and structure: truly a masterpiece!
