Description

Blend: 59% Cabernet Sauvignon and 41% Merlot

92 Points James Suckling - Rose-petal, cassis-bush and berry aromas. Medium to full body, tangy acidity and a soft and velvety mouthfeel. Round and friendly. Second wine of Pichon Lalande. Drink in 2019.

91 Points 
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - The 2014 Reserve de Comtesse de Lalande has a very fresh and vibrant bouquet with lovely cedar-infused black fruit that sings of Pauillac-ness (apologies for the made-up word!). The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp and elegant with a keen line of acidity. This feels quite linear at the moment and perhaps the finish could have dealt more complexity commensurate with the aromatics. Yet there is bundles of freshness infused into this Deuxième Vin and there is a palpable salinity on the aftertaste.

90 Points 
Wine Spectator - Deep, with a core of steeped plum, cassis and raspberry paste notes that are easily carried by a graphite spine, while anise and roasted apple wood details fill in the background. Shows lots of briary energy through the finish. Best from 2018 through 2026.
