Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 2019 – Pauillac, Grand Cru Classé

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 2019 – Pauillac, Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fresh, elegant and offers a nice concentration with finesse, power / deepness in finesse, delicacy, a certain little straightness, a small fleshiness of the fruit as well as complexity. It reveals notes of bright strawberry, small crushed red berries and small notes of black pepper associated with small charcoal touches, blueberry as well as slight hints of violet, Bourbon vanilla and a very discreet hint of blond tobacco (in the background). The mouth is beautifully elegant, pure and offers a well mastered / precise power, deepness, a slight hint of “blackness” as well as a fine and very discreetly tight grain. Beautiful “strength” in delicacy! Nice density and matter on the middle of the mouth. A pretty silkiness and fleshiness blended with an aerial side. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of bright wild cassis, fresh/pulpy blackberry and slight notes of bright red currants associated with touches of fresh/fleshy small blue fruits, graphite, tonka bean, cocoa, slight hints of Bourbon vanilla pod, lily/flowers as well as a hint of incense and sweet/toasted spices. Beautiful persistence. Tannins are powerful but full of finesse and delicacy.
