Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 2017 – Pauillac, Grand Cru Classé

The nose is elegant and offers concentration, finesse of the grain, deepness as well as complexity. It reveals notes of ripe blackberry, ripe raspberry, small notes of ripe Gariguette strawberry associated with a touch of violet, lily, small ripe fruits, gravels/terroir as well as fine hints of camphor, liquorice/liquorice stick, tea, toasted oak/vanilla, almond and nutmeg. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, racy and offers an acidulous frame, a small aerial side, a beautiful fat, roundness, a good definition, precision, racy minerality as well as a very fine tension. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, fleshy/juicy raspberry, juicy cherry and small notes of violet, lily associated with fine hints of crunchy redcurrant, toasted, toasted almond, chocolate as well as an imperceptible hint of sweet tobacco and cacao. Tannins are fine, elegant and very slightly firm. A good persistence. A very discreet chew on the finish/persistence.
