Reserve de la Comtesse is the second label of the Paulliac “Super Second” Growth estate of Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande. Created in 1688 when Viginie de Pichon Longueville, Countess de Lalande, inherited vineyards bordering the property of First Growth Chateau Latour from her father. For the past three centuries, the excellent reputation of the estate’s wines have been controlled by only two families.
The wines of Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande use a higher percentage of merlot than most wines from the Medoc, resulting in supple wines with great balance and finesse.
James Suckling 91 Points: Very polished tannins that caress the palate. Full body. It’s fruity, pretty and refined. The mineral and berry character comes through in a subtle way. Second wine of Pichon Lalande.
Wine Spectator 90 Points: Vibrant and silky, this slides down almost too easily, with delicious red and black currant fruit laced with hints of anise, violet and black tea. A flicker of singed balsa wood keeps the finish going along.
