Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

$205

Tasted at the chateau as part of a private vertical. The 2010 Pichon-Lalande is going to be a modern day benchmark and in many ways, surpasses even the great wines such as the 1982, 1986 and 1996. It has a stunning, intense blackberry, mineral-laden nose that is suffused with great tension and vigour. The palate is medium-bodied but do not let that full you. Here is a Pauillac brimming with tension and focus, the wine achieving tremendous precision on its long and persistent finish. Outstanding. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Neal Martin)

Wonderful comparison between (as one taster mentioned) the femininity of Lalande vs the masculinity of Baron. The theme held true throughout the night with most Barons being bigger and bolder and the Lalandes being more elegant and refined. Both beautiful but different.

Too young, needs at least 5 years. It does show a great potential.
