    January 29, 2023 - Beautiful nose - expressive cassis, boysenberry, lead pencil, and tobacco. As much as anything else, it's perhaps the synthesis of heft and deft which best defines Pichon Comtesse in aromatic and textural terms. Juicy, lovely, fresh finish.

    January 28, 2023 - Classic Pichon Lalande similar to 2019,
    Maybe less refined.

    January 9, 2023 - (77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 13.6% Alkohol) Was soll ich sagen? Es gibt Weine, deren Nase mich einfach in eine andere Welt befördern. Diese Comtesse springt förmlich aus dem Glas, zeigt neben floralen Aromen viel Würze, grüne Paprika, Minze, pfeffrige Würze, blonder Tabak, Tee, eine wahre Droge. Der Gaumen ist hochelegant, mit Tanninen, deren Qualität über alle Zweifel erhaben sind, mittlerer Körper, viel Präzision, alles ist an seinem Platz, tänzerisch leicht, mit Schmelz, Charme und einer bestechenden Länge. Viel besser geht's in Bordeaux wohl nicht... Big Wine. 2026-2050 (Verkostet am 8. November 2022 in Zürich) www.vvwine.ch

    November 14, 2022 - At a tasting of recently bottled 2020s. The exception to the rule that in this vintage the more expensive left bank wines are dark and tannic; Comtesse has gone to the other end of the spectrum and I found it a touch too soft for my taste and too hard on the wallet. Still, it will make a fascinating comparison with its neighbour for decades to come. Comtesse always had relatively soft tannins due in part to being at the high end of merlot content for the left bank, yet they usually more structure than this. Still a lovely wine.

    November 8, 2022 - Arvi Bordeaux 2020 Arrivage (Dolder Grand, Zurich): Bordeaux 2020 Arrivage tasting. Key observations: 1/ Tannins were generally soft and well-integrated, but still left room for structure, 2/ fruit generally ripe and well-defined, no over-extraction, 3/ all appellation were showing great, but if I had to pick out then it would be Paulliac, 4/ top wines were Petit Village (completely unexpected, 97) and Lynch Bages (96).

    Tasting note:
    Nicely floral with a sweet cherry fruit, earth and elements of dried herbs. Compared to Pichon Baron and Lynch Bages, in comparison the fruit was fresher, less extracted and sweeter. This translated seamlessly to the palate. Detailed and precise, but maybe lacking quite the depth of the other two mentioned. Hard to pick a favorite.
