Pichon Lalande 2020

Blend: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc



The 2020 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is an assertive expression right from the start, effusively releasing sweet cassis and blueberries on the nose, accompanied by subtle notes of clove, violets, and lilac. Medium to full-bodied, the wine unfolds with a velvety and polished texture, showcasing a seamless and charming profile devoid of any harsh edges. The palate experience is marked by its harmonious nature, and the wine culminates in a finely defined finish with a hint of spice that adds complexity and nuance to the overall tasting journey.

Robert Parker - 95 Points

"The 2020 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is very demonstrative out of the gates, bursting from the glass without any coaxing to exhibit aromas of sweet cassis and blueberries mingled with notions of clove, violets and lilac. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and polished, with a seamless, charming profile that exhibits no hard edges, it concludes with a nicely defined, spice-inflected finish. It's a superb exercise in haut couture winemaking, even if, to my palate, the 2019 offers a deeper dive into the estate's D.N.A."

Antonio Galloni - 97+ Points

"The 2020 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is an opulent, massively tannic wine that is going to need many years to come together. Waves of dark fruit, leather, dried flowers and chocolate emerge with great reluctance, framed by huge, insistent tannins that never let up. The 2020 is a wine for readers who can be very, very patient. I am not sure when the 2020 is going to be ready to drink, but it is not likely to be anytime soon. Tasted two times."
