Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 2016 – Pauillac, Cru Classé

The nose is beautifully elegant, well-built, aromatic, delicate, harmonious and offers a good definition, finesse, freshness, a velvety texture as well as a beautiful power (full of finesse). The wine needs to be put in carafe. It reveals notes of blackberry, cassis and small notes of ripe raspberry associated with touches of violet, sweet spices, vanilla, fine toasted hints as well as a subtle hint of Sichuan pepper and roasted almond. The palate is elegant, juicy, fruity and offers a beautiful definition, finesse, a beautiful texture, a beautiful minerality, a good structure, a beautiful finesse of the grain and power (but full of finesse and delicacy). On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy raspberry and small notes of wild berries associated with touches of violet, cassis, toasted, toasted almond, a touch of vanilla as well as slight hints of sweet spice. Tannins are elegant, well-built and very discreetly firm. There is a very discreet chew on the finish.
