In 2019, the name was changed from Reserve de la Comtesse to Pichon Comtesse Reserve.
Blend: 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc,
A candidate for the second wine of the vintage, the 2019 Réserve De Comtesse De Lalande is stunning stuff that surpasses the Grand Vins of most châteaux. Pure cassis and darker currants as well as tobacco leaf, lead pencil, and spring flowers all define the bouquet, and it's pure class on the palate, with a seamless, elegant, supple mouthfeel, beautiful tannins, and a great finish. It's one classy Pauillac that I'd be thrilled to drink any time over the coming two decades. Best After 2022. 94pts JD
