  • Neal Martin, September 2019, Score: 88

    The 1999 Pichon-Lalande has an attractive bouquet of raspberry, wild strawberry and light floral scents, although it is missing the mineralité and terroir expression of the best vintages (including the 2016 that I tasted alongside). The palate is rounded on the entry, with supple tannin, gentle grip and a note of licorice infusing the red fruit. There is a pastille-like quality to this 1999, although my criticism is that at 20 years of age it is missing the essence of Comtesse. Balanced, but does not have much to say. Tasted from an ex-château bottle at the estate.

  • Robert Parker, April 2002, Score: 87

    The 1999 Pichon Lalande performed inconsistently. This wine is a blend of 47% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 7% Petit Verdot. It offers a complex, evolved bouquet of cedar, underbrush, red currants, and spice box. The dark ruby color is not as saturated as many 1999s, and the wine possesses the weight and style of the 1979 and 1981 (both of which are superior to 1999). There is medium body, excellent ripeness, and an angular finish, without the persistence typically found at this chateau. Anticipated maturity: now-2012.

  • Robert Parker, April 2001, Score: 88-89

    A blend of 47% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 7% Petit Verdot, the 1999 Pichon-Lalande is putting on weight as it evolves in cask. The color is a deep ruby with purple nuances. Medium to full-bodied, with a sexy nose of caramel, tobacco, sweet black currants, and spice, it is a silky-textured, seductive effort that may merit an outstanding rating, if it develops more length and mid-palate. It has evolved well over the last year, and is now displaying more of Pichon-Lalande's class and nobility. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2018.

  • Robert Parker, April 2000, Score: 87-88

    Pichon Lalande appears to have taken a bumpy road. The 1999 tastes very good, but not up to the impeccably high standards this property has maintained for nearly two decades. The dark ruby-colored 1999 possesses an herbaceous, smoky, licorice, and black fruit-scented nose. Made in an elegant, medium-bodied style, it lacks depth, dimension, and persistence. This estate was obviously not able to fully overcome the heavy rain (six inches) that fell during the last two weeks of September. The 1999 is an easy to understand, charming, lighter-weight Pichon Lalande to drink during its first 10-12 years of life. Drink: 2000 - 2012.

  • Jancis Robinson, December 2001, Score: 17/20

    Rather lighter in both colour and impact than Pichon Baron though this is a subtle, arresting wine that is pretty well balanced despite its aggressively chewy end. Drink 2008-2018

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

This 2ème Cru Classé Pauillac estate was once merged with neighbouring Pichon Baron to form a much larger domaine. Due to inheritance problems, it was split in 1850 between only two children - one being Virginie de Lalande née de Pichon Longueville. The Lalande family sold the property in 1925 to Edouard and Louis de Miailhe. It remained in their family until Edouard's daughter, May Eliane de Lencquesaing, sold it to Louis ...Read more

The 89 hectares estate is a true Pauillac powerhouse and one of the most important 'Super Seconds', responsible for making some of the most sumptous and elegant Bordeaux wines.Read less

Region

Pauillac

Due south of St Estèphe lies the appellation of Pauillac, the king of Left Bank communes. It is home to three first growths as well as a plethora of other classified growths. Pauillac's renowned well-draining, gravelly soils enable its dominant grape Cabernet Sauvignon to reach fantastic heights of complexity and concentration. As a result, Pauilac's wines tend to be full-bodied with compact tannins and good freshness. Its aromatics are often what one associates with classic Bordeaux: pencil shavings, black currant and occasional mint. Some of the most famous châteaux of the commune are Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
