Lot #78. Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 2015

Description: Consists of 4 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 98+ AG.
"The 2015 Pichon Comtesse is a towering wine, as it has always been. Rich, sumptuous and totally hedonistic, the 2015 melds together intense fruit with structure. Far from an easygoing wine, the 2015 is going to need a number of years and will then drink well for several decades. Grilled herbs, smoke, new leather and licorice are some of the many notes that are layered into the dark-fleshed fruit for complexity. As good as the 2015 is today, it also has room to grow. Technical Director Nicolas Glumineau has done a tremendous job with the 2015s at Pichon Comtesse. The blend is 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, aged 18 months in oak, 55% new. Nicolas Glumineau has done a magnificent job with the 2015s at Pichon-Lalande. I first tasted the 2015s in January, when the wines were trial blends, and then several times in late March and early April. I was never anything less than deeply impressed. In short, Pichon-Lalande is one of the must-have wines of the vintage. It's as simple as that." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, Dec 2017
