Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, May 2007, Score: 90-92

The 2006 Pichon Lalande is strikingly more Margaux than Pauillac in style. This is no doubtpartially due to the fact that no Cabernet Franc or Petit Verdot was included in the final blend as they are in most years. Plus, their new consulting oenologist, Hubert de Bouard de Laforest of Château Angélus in St. Emilion, may be having an impact. Rich and velvety with an ample palate, it is polished and round. Finishes on clean ripe notes of strawberry and plum. Tasted twice withconsistent notes.

Producer

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

This estate was once merged with neighbouring Pichon Baron to form a much larger domaine. Due to inheritance problems, it was split in 1850 between only two children - one being Virginie de Lalande née de Pichon Longueville. The Lalande family sold the property in 1925 to Edouard and Louis de Miailhe. It remained in their family until Edouard's daughter, May Eliane de Lencquesaing,sold it earlier this year to Louis Roederer.

Region

Pauillac, Red Bordeaux

Due south of St Estèphe lies the appellation of Pauillac, the king of Left Bank communes. It is home to three first growths as well as a plethora of other classified growths. Pauillac's renowned well-draining, gravelly soils enable its dominant grape Cabernet Sauvignon to reach fantastic heights of complexity and concentration. As a result, Pauilac's wines tend to be full-bodied with compact tannins and good freshness. Its aromatics are often what one associates with classic Bordeaux: pencil shavings, black currant and occasional mint. Some of the most famous châteaux of the commune are Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
