description

Details

A welcome return to the velvety, rich seductive style you would expect from Pichon Lalande. The blend is 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot. A dense purple holds abundant aromas of chocolate, coffee, black currants and cedar. The palate is rich, savoury and full bodied with ripe fruit and a lingering finish.

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (181), February 2009

"This is a 21st century version of the brilliant 1996. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2030.One of the major disappointments in 2005 was Pichon Lalande, but the change in ownership, with the Roederer/Deutz Champagne firm taking control in 2006, resulted in a very severe selection being instituted, only 41% of the production went into the grand vin.

This estate dates back to the 1680s, when Pierre de Mazure de Rauzan, a wealthy bourgeois trader from Bordeaux, bought some vineyards near the Latour fiefdom and established a wine-growing estate. From the beginning the Pichon Longueville baronesses were a brilliant and strong feminine influence. Virginie Countess de Lalande continued this tradition in the 1850s, but during troubled times her descendents had to sell the estate. In spite of the unfavourable economic climate, in 1925 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande was bought by Edouard and Louis Miailhe, who came from an old land-owning family of Bordeaux brokers. These two courageous men implemented painstaking restructuring and management of the estate, bringing it back to life once more. Edouard’s daughter, May Eliane de Lencquesaing, took over in 1978 and the estate was sold to Louis Roederer in 2007.
