    January 1, 2023 - Red and dark fruit, dark cherries, graphite, and sweet fruit on the nose. The tannins are quite integrated with more dark cherry notes, cassis, and leather on the palate. Long finish. Showing really well, this is a very pretty wine that will only get better with time. 94+

    December 25, 2022 - Over-rated. Lacked the finesse you should expect at this price point…

    December 4, 2022 - Excellent Bordeaux approaching maturity but with “plenty of fuel in the tank”. It responded well to long decant, breathing.

    Noticeable ripe tannins are one of the things holding this wine together. It has charm but it’s not a Margaux. I know it’s the Comtesse but it’s more masculine than feminine.

    13.5%, cork.

    December 3, 2022 - This is really starting to come around. Needed a short decant to become expressive. Lovely black currant and leafy herbal nose. Palate is smooth and integrated—quite polished, with minimal tannin at this point. Quite typical and correct for the estate. Elegant and polished, leaning towards black fruit with telltale green herbal (the good kind) mixed in. Moderate finish, adding some pipe tobacco and leather notes. Not a blockbuster like ‘89/‘96 but an excellent bdx in an average vintage. Might bet marginally better but already in a great spot.

    November 2, 2022 - Surprisingly big and robust, especially for the 04 vintage. This has the balance found in Bordeaux but could also be a Cali cab made on the less extractive side, though this is fully ripe. Still young and with quite a wack of tannin. Lovely bramble fruit and close to full bodied, with moderate acidity. Long finish and some complexity. There is also pepper and mellow cake spices here. Drink now and over the next 20+ years.

    (Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande) Tight, with a little oak on the nose; tight and somewhat herbaceous on the palate, with a creamy oak texture, not as charming as the '03, but does have potential; medium finish 90+ pts.
