Description/ Tasting NotesThe deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Reserve de la Comtesse springs from the glass with vibrant scents of ripe blackcurrants, black raspberries and baked plums, plus suggestions of pencil lead, cedar chest, ground cloves and lilacs. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly crafted with fine-grained tannins and lovely freshness nicely framing the delicate fruit, finishing earthy.
Winery Info/ Brand
Reserve de La Comtesse is the Second Wine of Château Pichon Lalande that existed as early as the 19th century with a record showing in 1890 that four bottles of the vintage 1874 Second Wine were shipped to the Moscow Exhibition. Due to the popular preference for its year of production of the Reserve de la Comtesse, the label was sold for the first time in 1973.
Region Info/ Origin
Pauillac is home to several of the world's most famous wine and the region lies in an inauspicious small village in Médoc. Pauillac sprawls over the land size of about 8.8 square miles, is highly optimised for wine production and accounts for a rather disproportionate amount of fine, expensive wine in Bordeaux.
