Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande ,Pauillac 2007
Made from a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot, all grown on the estate's vineyards on the left bank of the Gironde estuary.
The grapes were harvested by hand and underwent a rigorous selection process before being fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then aged for 18 months in oak barrels, 50% of which were new.
It has a deep ruby color with purple reflections, and an elegant and complex aroma of blackcurrant, blackberry, and cherry, along with notes of tobacco, cedar, and spices. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, with fine tannins, a good acidity, and a long and persistent finish.
This wine is considered to be one of the finest wines produced by Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, and it has received high ratings from wine critics.
A wine of great elegance and finesse, with the potential to age for many years.
